  • I was shocked on the size of the museum which also used to be a house. The museum was really beautiful and the art works were amazing. I love that they have special exhibitions; now they have African American art on exhibit.
  • A wonderful small museum on a wooded site. The collection of art is housed in a geometric, masterpiece Phillip Johnson building.
  • What a private collection! Impressionist and modernist gems in an impressive architectural cocoon. Excellent programs for the kids. Not to be missed if you love art.
  • The Kreeger Museum seems like a hidden DC gem. I had never heard of it, but I went recently with an acquaintance, and I was pleasantly surprised by its impressive (albeit small) collection. They have a number of Picassos, Rodins, Monets, etc., so if you like the masters, you will enjoy yourself. I also enjoyed the really cool outdoor sculpture garden area. My least favorite was the temporary exhibition ("The Lure of the Forest"), but all in all, I would recommend checking this museum out..! Just keep in mind that it's not that easily accessible by public transit, so go with a friend who has a car.
  • Amazing collection in an interesting building - a home designed to become a museum. The breakfast nook / room full of Monet's is sublime.
