DC National Gallery of Art Guided Museum Tour – Private

Discover more about this tour

At the DC National Gallery of Art you’ll find an eclectic mix of art from Renaissance artists, the French Impressionists, and great American painters all under one roof. This 2.5 hour private tour will pair you with one of our energetic young guides who will explain some of the world’s most iconic artists.



Our guides will take you on your own private excursion to discuss pieces by artists including Da Vinci and Degas. Monet’s “Woman with a Parasol,” Stuart’s portrait of George Washington, and Titan’s “Venus with a Mirror” are just some of the highlights. They’ll share the stories and, if you’re lucky, the scandals behind these paintings. Discuss the techniques used to create these important works as well as the museum itself, which transformed from a nearly empty building to a world-class museum in less than 100 years.

Highlights Generally Include: (if artwork is not on loan or being restored etc.) • Little Dancer by Edgar Degas • Ginevra de’ Benci by Leonardo da Vinci • George Washington by Gilbert Stuart • Self Portrait by Vincent Van Gogh • Venus with a Mirror by Titian • Woman with a Parasol by Claude Monet • The Alba Madonna by Raphael

    Aaron was absolutely wonderful with us in this tour about the National Gallery. Very knowledgeable guy and nice to be with. He showed us unusual stuff inside of the Gallery and we’ve learned a lot . This is a very good way to start in Washington.

    Great experience. I called the evening before to see if it was possible to reschedule to a later time. They were able to accommodate us, texted info back, and generally took care of everything. Our guide, George, was friendly, really responded to our interests, did a great job explaining some interesting antidotes and had an engaging personality.
