Lonely Planet review

The National Gallery of Art’s 6-acre garden is studded with whimsical sculptures such as Roy Lichtenstein’s House, a giant Claes Oldenburg typewriter eraser and Louise Bourgeois’ leggy Spider . They are scattered around a fountain – a great place to dip your feet in summer. From November to March the garden’s central fountain becomes an Ice Rink . Skate rental ($3) is available. During summer the garden is open an hour later than the rest of the year, and evening jazz concerts are held on Fridays from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.
