The station was originally named "Gallery Place" because it is situated under the National Portrait Gallery. The "Chinatown" suffix was added in the 1980s - the station's main entrance lets out right beneath the Chinatown arch - and the station may eventually be called Gallery Place-Chinatown/MCI Center because that arena is directly above the station. The main branch of the public library system is near the station, as is the original downtown Convention Center.
