The Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery together form the national museum of Asian art. The galleries offer one of the Western world's most refined collections of Asian art and the finest collection of paintings by James McNeill Whistler . . . anywhere. Hours are from 10 AM to 5:30 PM every day except Dec. 25, and admission is free.
