National Portrait Gallery Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
This museum might be thought of as the nation's family album. Modeled after its namesake in London, the National Portrait Gallery conserves some 15,000 paintings sculptures, photographs, engravings and drawings of "men and women who have made significant contributions to the history, development and culture of the people of the United States." To be accepted into the permanent collection, portraits must be original works of art, preferably taken from life.
