The National Gallery is a good museum, but what made it a truly beautiful experience for our visit was that we were there on a Friday in mid-January which meant that there were hardly any people in the museum. No kids because they are all in school. No tourists because it is post holidays, middle of January and freezing cold. I LOVE empty museums. I love to look at art in peace and quiet. It is so distracting to me when there are crowds of people surrounding you, and people walking in front of you, and kids running around, and people talking loudly. This museum visit was BLISS.
I am really happy we were able to pay a visit to the National Gallery this trip. I look forward to returning to this museum. On a weekday. Always a weekday.
