Using portraits, photographs, and other visual media, the National Portrait Gallery honors America’s famous and distinguished personalities. Right from politicians and artists to scientists and social activists, all shine brightly in the spotlight here. For tourists and locals alike, this gallery represents a remarkable testimony to the diverse figures that the United States has produced. While photographs, prints, drawings, and sculptures supplement the paintings, the Hall of Presidents is a noteworthy feature of the gallery. Interestingly, apart from the White House, this gallery is the only other home to the complete collection of presidential portraits.
