This free museum houses Galleries 1-20 of the Freer-Sackler Galleries. The exhibits are arranged along a main hallway that wraps its way around a central courtyard. Smaller rooms housing display pieces branch off of the hallway. The museum contains an impressive collection of statues, porcelain, tapestries, and other artwork from Asia, with galleries dedicated to China, Korea, India, and other countries. There is a great deal of information dedicated to tracing the spread of Buddhism throughout Asia. Some notable exhibits include the Peacock Room and the Freer exhibit (dedicated to Charles Lang Freer, for which the museum is named). The central courtyard is also accessible.
