Welcome and Rotunda History (ASL)

This video introduces John Russell Pope’s design for the West Building Rotunda, which opened to the public on March 17, 1941 with a ceremony led by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The museum’s coffered dome and columns were inspired by the ancient Roman Pantheon. This video is the first of 27 that introduce the works of art featured on the Director’s Tour in American Sign Language.
