National Gallery Of Art to Reopen Ice Rink in November


The National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden is preparing to start the ice skating season with the opening of its beloved ice rink on November 26, weather permitting.

“Take a spin on the ice surrounded by the grand architecture of national museums and monuments. Enjoy splendid views of large-scale sculptures from artists in our renowned collection, including Alexander Calder, Louise Bourgeois, and Roy Lichtenstein,” said the museum in a statement.

Visitors will be able to skate on the rink between 11:00 am and 9:00 pm Sunday through Thursday, and 11:00 am to 11:00 pm on Friday and Saturday.

Admission fee is $12 for anyone 13 years and older, $9 for kids ages 12 and under, 60 and older, military service members, and students. Frequent skaters may opt for the season pass, which costs $225. 

Both private and group skating lessons are offered by Washington Elite Skating School for skaters of all ages and levels. Lessons can also be organized for special events like birthday parties.

Registration for group classes will begin on November 1 and can also be made 15 minutes ahead of an ongoing group lesson.

The Sculpture Garden is located at 7th Street and Constitution Ave NW. Entrance is available at 7th Street, Constitution Avenue, and Madison Avenue.

The ice rink will remain open until March 5, 2023. Visit the museum’s website for more details.
