We love the Portrait Gallery! It's the home of the presidential portraits and there are always new exhibits. The gift shop is lovely and the courtyard is a zen place to take a break from DC crowds and traffic.

My favorite museum. It opens later (11am) and stays open later (7pm) than the other Smithsonian museums, which all close at 5pm. There's great restaurants in that area as well.

Art Museum
“The National Gallery of Art’s collection spans two major buildings – one classical, the other modern – and encompasses a six-acre sculpture garden containing a rotating display of permanent works and traveling exhibitions. The permanent collection spans ancient to contemporary art, including the likes of da Vinci, Degas and Calder, while the museum offers public programming (think art history movies and classical concerts) and hands-on activities for kids. And if you’re visiting during the winter, be sure to hit the outdoor ice-skating rink located in the center of the sculpture garden.”
