Located in Northwest Washington, DC, adjacent to Capital One Arena, the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery invites guests to experience portraiture beyond the frame. Their collections, which presents people of remarkable character and achievement, were initially restricted to paintings, prints, and the like. However, today, they’ve grown to over 23,000 items in all media, from daguerreotypes to digital. The National Portrait Gallery is also home to the only complete collection of presidential portraits outside the White House; their America’s Presidents exhibition lies at the heart of the Gallery’s mission to tell the country’s history through the individuals who have shaped it.
