Our museums and the National Zoo are open today and tomorrow. We are awaiting guidance on our operating status for Monday.
1661 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Grand Salon, 2nd Floor
On view in the Grand Salon are some 200 Catlin paintings and 3 Thomas Moran paintings—2 date from 1872 and are on long-term loan from the U.S. Dept. of the Interior, and a 3rd from 1893 that is part of the museum's permanent collection. The exhibition recalls Catlin's installation of his Indian Gallery as he displayed it during his tours of Europe in the 1840s, with works hung salon-style, one-atop-another and side-by-side.
