about The Donald W. Reynolds Center:
In addition to the museums, the Reynolds Center has two really cool areas: the Lunder Conservation Center provides visitors the opportunity - through floor-to-ceiling glass walls and interactive kiosks - to see conservators at work in five different laboratories and studios (frames studio, paintings studio, paintings lab, paper lab, and objects lab); and the Luce Foundation Center for American Art is a visible art storage and study center, featuring more than 3,300 artworks, including paintings densely hung on screens; sculptures, contemporary craft and folk art objects arranged on shelves; and portrait miniatures, bronze medals and contemporary jewelry and in drawers that slide open with the touch of a button.
The Reynolds Center has a cafe on the third floor, serving salads and sandwiches, and an outside cafe - more dessert oriented, which is open based on the weather. And don't miss the bookstore on the first floor, well stocked with reproductions, books, and other gifts.
