Kennedy Cen­ter Tours

Where Washington - - EXPLORE -

At this per­for­mance hub, the na­tion’s me­mo­rial to a slain pres­i­dent, not all the art is on stage. Dur­ing free tours given by Friends of the Kennedy Cen­ter, vis­i­tors see some of the in­ter­na­tional splen­dor that decks these halls. More than 60 na­tions have given gen­er­ous gifts, in­clud­ing Swe­den’s 16 Or­refors crys­tal chan­de­liers for the Grand Foyer and Ja­pan’s red silk and gold cur­tain for the Opera House stage. The fi­nal daz­zling sight? From the Roof Ter­race, world-class views. 2700 F St. NW, 202.467.4600, kennedy-cen­ter.com
