Sculpture Garden at the National Gallery of Art

Located in a 6.1-acre block across from the West Building of the National Gallery of Art and the National Archives, this unconventional garden includes monumental sculptures from the NGA’s collection including works from Joan Miró. The Sculpture Garden also boasts a sizable fountain that is replaced by a skating rink in the winter months and offers food a drink options and indoor seating in the all-glass Pavilion Café.
