The National Gallery

The national Gallery is an art museum in Trafalgar Square in central London. There are 2300 paintings from the 13th century to the 19th century. The entry to the main collection is free and it is one of the most visited museums in the world. The openings hours are every day from 10 am till 6 pm except on Fridays when it is open from 10 am till 9 pm. The National art Gallery was founded in 1824 and it was planned that the Royal Academy of arts would also have a home in this building, but unfortunately, it was too small, so the Royal Academy of Arts moved to the Burlington House. Between 1872 and 1876a East Wing was built and in 1991 the Sainsbury wing. I think we should go there because there are very beautiful paintings, it has a historical background and the entry is free.
