The national gallery is, simply stated, one of the greatest museums in the u.s. It has an exceptional and broad collection along with a great sculpture garden, terrific theater and wonderful cafe and gift shop. Plus there is the building itself, which is fantastic.

We visited this museum on a Sunday morning in late October. There were no lines at all. The building is very modern and very accessible. I don't know if wheelchairs are available.
