Thousands of works of art, artifacts and archival materials are available for the study of portraiture.
Visitors of all ages can learn about portraiture through a variety of weekly public programs to create art, tell stories, and explore the museum.
Due to rising regional and national cases related to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Smithsonian museums, including the National Zoo, will temporarily close to the public starting Monday, Nov. 23. We are not announcing a reopening date at this time.
