Highlights

Join us for a quirky tour of one of the most historic (and underrated) buildings and museums in Washington DC. Dive into American history through art while your local guide regales you with amazing tales of the power players who shaped the country all while taking in one of the world’s largest collections of art.

What You'll Get

Visit: National Portrait Gallery, F Street NW Smithsonian Institution, Washington DC, DC 20560

Join us for an unconventional tour of one of our favourite museums in Washington DC. Everyone knows American television shows, movies, music, and fashion but let’s celebrate one of the oldest, yet underappreciated, forms of American culture: art.

Visit the National Portrait Gallery and Smithsonian American Art Museum to learn about important American artists and some of the unsung heroes in our country’s story.

Duration: 1 hour

Visit: Smithsonian American Art Museum, 8th and F Streets, NW, Washington DC, DC 20013

We’re going to talk about a local janitor’s 14-year masterpiece, which was found by chance in his garage, discuss the American dream, check out the original Singer sewing machine, and learn about the power players throughout US history.

We’ll use the prism of American art to view the unique story of this country and talk about its origins, its awkward adolescent period, and the past century where it has truly come into its own.

Duration: 1 hour

Visit: Washington DC Urban Adventures, Washington DC, DC 20004

Before you go, don’t forget to ask your guide for more hints and tips on what else there is to see, do and eat during your stay in wonderful Washington DC.

Duration: 2 hours
