Freer Gallery of Art

A model of classical architecture and refinement, the Freer Gallery of Art holds the distinction of being the first art museum on the Smithsonian campus. The museum’s galleries showcase American paintings from the Aesthetic movement of the late nineteenth century, as well as the arts of China, the Indian subcontinent, Japan, Korea, and the Islamic world. Guests can sip cocktails in the graceful central courtyard or enjoy a fine meal in the grand marble corridors.
