The Ice Rink


The Ice Rink will open for the season in November 2016.

Located on the National Mall between 7th and 9th Streets along Constitution Avenue NW, the Ice Rink is a favorite Washington destination, attracting thousands of visitors to skate in the nation's capital.

The experience of skating in the Sculpture Garden, surrounded by the grand architecture of national museums and monuments, is enhanced by splendid views of large-scale sculptures by modern and contemporary artists including Louise Bourgeois, Alexander Calder, Roy Lichtenstein, Roxy Paine, Tony Smith, and others from the Gallery's renowned collection.
