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 fountain becomes a festive ice rink .

In summer, the garden hosts free evening jazz concerts on Fridays from 5pm to 8:30pm.
