Day out at the National Gallery

Travel Date: Aug 20, 2016

Today I went to the National Gallery, it is located in Trafalgar Square. To get there we took the Piccadilly line and got off at Piccadilly Circus. From there we walked to the museum. My family and I go there about once a month to see different paintings, you cannot see the whole museum in one day if you want to truly enjoy the museum. The great part is museum is always free and everybody is welcome there. Today we spent time in the 16th century paintings area on level 2. My favorite area was the Italian section in rooms 6, 8, and 9. Paintings included one from Michelangelo which was interesting since it was unfinished. We had a little time to also check out a special exhibition showing paintings of flowers. The exhibition is called Dutch Flowers and it is open until August 29th 2016.

One tip is right next store to the National Gallery is the National Portrait Museum.

One great part about the museum is the entrance. It overlooks a great view of Trafalgar Square and in the distance you can see Big Ben.
