    VIBE

    Elegant galleries displaying the Asian art collection of Charles Lang Freer and Arthur M. Sackler. An underground tunnel connects the Freer and Sackler Galleries, creating one comprehensive collection of Chinese jades, bronzes, and ceramics; Japanese art; Islamic religious artifacts; Korean paintings; and so much more. After a stroll through the serene gardens and courtyards (we especially loved the Freer Courtyard), guests can enjoy an interesting rotation of exhibits, free concerts and lectures, film screenings, or fun and interactive events for kids and families.

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    It’s a quiet and more refined experience than the other (tourist-packed) Smithsonian museums.

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    Not much.
