    The National Gallery of London offers an incredible array of artworks, showcasing the talents of masters like Monet, Rousseau, and Van Gogh. The fact that admission is free is truly remarkable, allowing anyone to appreciate these masterpieces without financial barriers. While tickets aren't required, the option to make a donation supports the gallery's ongoing efforts. Overall, it provides a great experience for art enthusiasts and visitors alike.

    Amazing collection and immense. It's FREE, so why would anyone miss a visit while you're in London? Even if you only have time for the highlights, they have an amazing website highlighting the must see works. Whether you're a novice or art lover, it's worthy of your time, short or long,to visit the National Gallery.

    Lovely museum with free admission, though do prebook a ticket so you can skip the long line waiting to buy tickets. Well laid out, so fairly easy to follow rooms in sequence and not miss anything. Raphael is still the best in my opinion, and he didn’t disappoint here. One of the best art collections in the world - do not miss.

    Can easily walk through it in a day without problems and they have a decent amount of paintings. No statues so do know that but the paintings are well selected. They also have a nice cafe with a good menu as well. For a free museum it’s a delightful experience to visit.
