National Gallery of Art

Highly recommended
The National Gallery's world-class collection of masterpieces traces the development of Western art from the Middle Ages to the present. The original West Building concentrates primarily on European works from the 13C through the early 20C. Its contemporary counterpart, the East Building, highlights works of modern artists.
