Come take part in one of our great holiday traditions. The Ice Rink at the National Gallery of Art’s Sculpture Garden is now open. Admission will cost $8 for adults and $7 for those over 50, under 12 or in possession of a school ID. (Skates can still be rented for $3.) The rink will be open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday-Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays; on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day, the rink will close at 5 p.m. Both private and group lessons by experienced instructors are available by appointment. The rink, at 7th Street and Constitution Ave. NW, is in its 13th season and will remain open until March 11 (as long as it stays cold enough).
