The ground floor of the West Building of the National Gallery of Art is now open with reservations, face masks, and distancing. Each person will need to make their own reservation for the 11:00a time slot.

Passes will indicate 30-minute entry windows that fall between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. While we will do our best to honor the scheduled time on your pass, entry into the West Building will be subject to building capacity and safety.
Please arrive within the 30-minute window listed on your pass.
Please have your pass available (on your phone or printed) for entry.
We recommend allotting approximately 90 minutes for your visit.
A limited number of walk-in passes will be available on a first-come, first-served basis throughout the day.
Passes are not required for the Sculpture Garden.
Do not forget your mask!
We will meet outside the building at the entrance at 6th Street, NW and Constitution Avenue, NW at 10:45a.
Hint: Parking is usually OK in the “permit only” lot across from the East Building on weekends.)

As always, family and friends are welcome, especially prospective members.
