Owner description: The Smithsonian Institution has two museums of Asian art: the Freer Gallery of Art, which opened to the public in 1923, and the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, which welcomed its first visitors in 1987. Together known as the Freer|Sackler, the museums are physically connected by an underground passageway and ideologically linked through the study, exhibition, and sheer love of Asian art. Please note: The Freer Gallery of Art will be closed to the public from January 2016 until summer 2017. The Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Library, and Archives will remain open for the duration of the renovation.

Truly excellent selection of works thoughtfully arranged. Great contribution to the Smithsonian tradition. Lovely courtyard in which to take refreshments.

The large crowds from the tourist buses run to the big Smithsonian museums while this small gem is left in relative piece. This is a very nice museum, showing a lot of asian art. Don't miss the peacock room when you visit.

Went for the Whistler in London exhibit (which is actually in the Sackler building) along with the permanent Whistler collection and the Peacock room (in the Freer building). Located at the far end of the museums, it is often overlooked by visitors and should not be. Terrific Asian art exhibits on display, too.

A nice sampling of Asian art, the Peacock room is a marvel. museum lay out is a little confusing. The back gardens are pretty.
