Freer Gallery

The National Museum of Asian Art consists of the Freer and Sackler Galleries. I was more interested in the Freer Gallery and did not visit the Sackler Gallery even though it was right next door - so many museums, so little time. The Freer Gallery has major exhibits of art from the Indian Subcontinent, Islamic World, Japan, Korea, China, and American Painters.
