National Gallery of Art
4th Ave & Constitution Ave NW
Washington, DC (on the National Mall)

Andrew W. Mellon began gathering old master paintings and sculptures with the intent of creating a national art gallery in the 1920s. Congress approved construction on the National Mall in 1937. Architect of the Jefferson Memorial, John Russell Pope designed the gallery to be the world largest marble structures. On March 17, 1941, President Roosevelt accepted the building on behalf of the American people. The museum stands on the former site of the Sixth Street railway station, most famous for being where 20th president James Garfield was shot in 1881.
