The National Portrait Gallery

Date: Friday, April 17th, from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Price: 20.00 USD per person

The National Portrait Gallery is located 0.3 miles from the Grand Hyatt. Those attending should plan to walk to the museum for the start of the tour, which beings before the museum opens to the public. The tour will include a one hour docent-led tour of the National Portrait Gallery's highlights, which serves as the perfect way to be introduced to the museum's permanent collection galleries and special exhibitions. Connect with past US Presidents, inventors, social activists, and contemporary Americans all in the same place. You will visit all three floors of the museum and view some of its most popular portraits; you will also learn about the building's history and architectural elements. During this tour, you will experience firsthand how the National Portrait Gallery's mission to "tell the story of America by portraying the people who shaped the nation's history, development and culture" can be a source of inspiration.

Tickets can be purchased during the online registration process.
