Pavilion Café at the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden

Map
Seventh St. and Constitution Ave., Washington, D.C. 20565, United States

The museum takes the art outside, creating a fanciful playground of oversize sculptures including an XXL spider by Louise Bourgeois and a cartoonishly large typewriter eraser by Claus Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen. On Fridays in the summer, the garden hosts free jazz concerts; in the winter, skaters take to the ice rink.
