What a great visit! This gallery has some remarkable works in its collection. It was definitely worth a trip- even with all the stiff museum competition in DC. Very knowlegable and friendly staff.

Unfortunately I'm not as impressed with the National Gallery compared to many others across the world. Its very large and has a lot of works but it just seems to lack a great interesting collection.

I went on a Tuesday morning, and there were no lines at all! It's a great exhibit. No tickets or timed entry required. It's one of the great public institutions in Washington that taxpayers support. ENjoy!

Yes, the National Gallery of Art is a federally funded museum and would close in case on government shutdown.
