We'll use the prism of American art to view the unique story of this country and talk about its origins, its awkward adolescent period, and the past century where it has truly come into its own.

Visit the National Portrait Gallery and Smithsonian American Art Museum to learn about important American artists and some of the unsung heroes in our country's story. We're going to talk about a local janitor's 14-year masterpiece, which was found by chance in his garage, discuss the American dream, check out the original Singer sewing machine, and learn about the power players throughout US history.

Join us for an unconventional tour of one of our favorite museums in Washington DC. Everyone knows American television shows, movies, music, and fashion but let's celebrate one of the oldest, yet under-appreciated, forms of American culture: Art.

Exclusions: Food and drinks, souvenirs and personal shopping, and tips/gratuities for your guide.

Confirmation of booking: If you have your voucher, your booking is confirmed. We'll see you at the start point. Get in touch if you have any concerns or require more information via the email address or phone number (business hours only) on your voucher.

Before you go, don't forget to ask your guide for more hints and tips on what else there is to see, do and eat during your stay in wonderful Washington DC.
