Renwick Gallery

Interesting
The earliest major example of the Second Empire style in America and an embodiment of Victorian tastes, this ornate brick building adds a touch of quiet elegance to the bustling corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and 17th Street. Inside, its galleries highlight the Simthsonian's best works of contemporary and traditional American craftsmanship, from pieces in clay, fiber and glass to ornate clocks and works of decorative art.
