  • Wonderful pocket museum with a fantastic collection and nary a crowd. While the National Portrait Gallery nearby is besieged by tourists with lines around the block, enjoy this nearby gem with a small but we'll curated collection of impressionist and post impressionist works while being nearly alone in room after room. You will feel sooooo superior to everyone else for having discovered this rare gem.
