  • Friends who live in Washington made me discover this small museum during my last stay. Coming to attend the 50 ° anniversary of the Met at Lincoln Center, I was more interested in his architect Philip Johnson was also the one who had built the House which now houses the collection of the Kreeger. It is a kind of private museum, which allows to see the exhibited works quietly and very closely if desired. It is surrounded by a lovely Park which contains various sculptures, which unfortunately I haven't enjoyed during my visit because of incessant rain. Unlike the other museums in the city, this one is not to speak free. The day of my visit, the entrance was free, but it was kindly suggested we make a small donation. What we do willingly to contribute to the maintenance of the place.

  • Definitely a must both for the great art collection and for the architecture. Such a unique place full of passion and art. The staff is extremely passionate and helpful. A real pleasure to talk to them.
  • What a treat! Art and architecture in one place. If you ever dreamed of building a home to house your paintings, be inspired by The Kreeger Museum.
  • December 2012 visit. Small, exquisitely curated. Amazing building. Five stars.
  • A fantastic collection in a beautiful environment. Worth multiple visits...
  • The sculpture garden is fantastic. Great place for a date.

Where to stay in Washington DC

Most visitors to Washington, D.C., end up in the East End, the old downtown district containing most of the city's major cultural attractions. For a more authentic Washingtonian experience, consider staying at a smaller hotel just a little north or east of this busy area. Neighborhoods outside downtown offer less expensive accommodations and affordable street parking, as well as opportunities to meet more locals and fewer tourists. Alternatively, try a hotel in Georgetown, packed with high-end shops and Colonial architecture.
