Views from the Tall Tower

August 1, 2012 – Indefinitely

Museum: Smithsonian Castle

Location: West Corridor

In 1863, artist Titian Ramsey Peale took a series of 8 photographs from the roof of the Castle’s tall north tower that form a panoramic view of Washington. A corresponding set of 8 images, taken from the exact same vantage points in 2012, shows a much changed city.

Note: On Monday, December 8, the Castle is closed to the public from 12:00 noon to 5:30 p.m. It reopens Tuesday, December 9 at 8:30 a.m..
