Sometimes a visit to an art museum can be overwhelming. What do you focus on? What are the must-see pieces? Alleviate that stress by letting our Professional museum tour guide Stephen Mead take you through the National Gallery of Art's highlights, historical showstoppers and fan favorites! Over the course of two hours, he'll point out and discuss important pieces and share with you the symbols, stories and interesting background information. Until about six years ago, Mead lived in London where he led exhibit tours of the Victoria and Albert Museum and gave presentations for the UK National Arts Collection Fund. Since moving to DC, he has combined his love of museums with his professional storytelling skills, making his tours both educational and enjoyable.

"Our guide Stephen was great! Very enjoyable and well thought out choices - a wonderful overview of the treasures at the National Gallery!" Customer review on Goldstar

"While guiding us to a selection of the art at the gallery Stephen Mead was entertaining and informative. He had a story to tell about each piece of art that he took us to view and pointed out details that would have escaped most of us if we were on our own. In the process we learned something about art that we didn't know before the tour. It will stand us in good stead as we continue to view and enjoy the masterworks of the art world wherever we go.
