Fun Things for Kids to do in DC | National Portrait Gallery

This weekend we finally had a chance to visit the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery! The many colorful exhibits are fun and exciting for the whole family.

Of course, our first stop was Explore! with the Portrait Gallery. Designed for young children, the Explore room has many activities to stimulate the imagination and introduce kids to the concept of artistic representation of people.

Visitors are able to draw, design, and record each other's likenesses to examine characteristics that we share as well as those that make us unique.

We were easily drawn towards the many other captivating exhibits at the Gallery, especially the portraits in Experience America and In the Groove, which showcases the celebrated faces of the Jazz Age.

Our trip to the National Portrait Gallery was a fun day of learning about history, art and culture. Click here here for more information and plan your trip today.
