Portrait Discovery Kits

Portrait Discovery Kits are an interactive and imaginative way for visitors to learn more about people who are in the National Portrait Gallery and their contributions to American history. The kits offer a self-guided tour, “Seek and Find” cards, “Portrait Detective” and “Historian Guides” and a “Compare and Contrast” activity using a doll. Visitors can check out kits just outside of the National Portrait Gallery’s Education Center, room E151, on the first floor. Kits must be returned prior to 4 p.m. Saturdays and 5 p.m. Sundays. This program is sponsored in part by the Reinsch Family Education Endowment.
