Στη φωτογραφία βλέπουμε την πρόσοψη της εθνικής πινακοθήκης. Από την είσοδο μπροστά υπάρχει μια ράμπα για αναπηρικό αμαξίδιο. Το κτήριο είναι σε χρώμα γκρι και στην είσοδο υπάρχει το λογότυπο της εθνικής πινακοθήκης σε Ελληνικά και Αγγλικά. Το μεγαλύτερο μπροστινό μέρος του κτηρίου είναι με τζαμαρία. Στα αριστερά πριν την είσοδο υπάρχει ένα τμήμα του κήπου.
