It was amazing. We went with a family, which could be complicated if you think about age difference. It was magical. All the guides were incredible. The place is a must go in DC. Just relax and enjoy. more »
What a lovely, serene place, so conducive to acquiring an appreciation of thoughtful post-modern art driven by mathematics and philosophy. Interesting, accessible docents. Beautiful landscape and architecture.
The beautifully designed and managed grounds with spectacular sculptures was well worth the trip from Baltimore. The current indoor exhibit was very unusual and the docents were very professional and helped you explore the exhibit without having too much history and and more about the feeling of the exhibit which relates to a sense of architecture and visual perceptions. Lots of places for outdoor photography throughout the grounds but no photography permitted indoors.

My group of eight visited beautiful Glenstone on February 17, 2016, and had a wonderful time. We were warmly welcomed at the gate and in the museum and led by Richard Franklin on an informative guide of the sculpture grounds. Thank you for allowing us to visit. I look forward to returning.
I liked the Andy Goldsworthy "permanent" piece at Glenstone contemporary Museum. It's made of earth & clay, with fibers of hair in between. This ball has it's own house.

I am going to keep this short. I am almost speechless. What I experienced at Glenstone today, will stay with me forever. My horizons have expanded. This is a jewel in the art world. I got to twirl below a suspended, stuffed rat! Need I say more?
