Support The Freer And Sackler Galleries

Our world-renowned collections, exhibitions, and public programs offer inspiring encounters with Asian art and culture for diverse audiences, free of charge, 364 days a year. As part of the Smithsonian, the Galleries lead the world in education, research, and conservation.
