The folks who created the Freer - Sackler Galleries of the Smithsonian Museum did a masterful job of making a place that is both a work of art and a great place to view art. You can look in almost any direction and see something that is visually attractive. Skylights, archways, lights, windows, and even stairwells. The design of the stairways goes well beyond getting visitors from one place to another and even the placement and style of the handrails was considered in the overall design. When is the last time you wanted to stop on a set of steps and admire the view? This place will make you do that.
