The National Gallery of Art (NGA) encourages visitors to be their own tour guides.

NGA released “Your Art,” its new, free app for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch last week.

The app allows visitors to explore the galleries through two self-guided tours. It also keeps consumers up to date with a list of events and exhibitions, images of various works housed at the museum, as well as visitor information.

And if you haven’t jumped onto the Apple bandwagon, NGA allows visitors to borrow one of 20 iPod Touches from the West Building Audio Tour Desk.
