Plan showing the original arrangement of galleries, with the Japanese screen gallery (labeled "Japanese Paintings") linking the Whistler galleries to the other galleries devoted to American art.

Get here quick! The Freer Gallery will close for renovation on January 4, 2016, so we can better present our art and serve our visitors. Check out asia.si.edu/future to learn more and plan your trip.
