An Art Museum

With enthusiasm, DC travel guides point out stunning art galleries up and down the National Mall and beyond. The American Art Museum, The National Gallery of Art, The Hirshorn, and Kreeger Museums. The most comprehensive tour guides include Museum of the Bible in that list. The extraordinarily detailed imagery found in the pages of illuminated medieval Bibles is just one example. Throughout the six floors of the museum are sculptures, stained glass windows, and pieces reflecting fine examples of art from Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Ethiopic, and Orthodox cultures. Because great art is timeless, visitors will find carvings and etchings from thousands of years ago to silkscreen pop art created by some of the most beloved artists of the 1960s through today.
