  • Hidden in the Foxhall Crescent neighborhood, in northwest D.C., the Kreeger is a small museum, ideal for a low-key morning or afternoon. It is the former residence of David and Carmen Kreeger and hold...  more »

  • I just loved this museum. The home in which it is housed is such unique architecture. The grounds are lovely. The small taste of the life of these two people is a wonderful story of coming out of mode...  more »

  • When the museums along the National Mall are for tourists, the museums off the National Mall are for the locals. The Kreeger Museum is a small, art gallery in NW DC between the neighborhoods of Foxhall Village and Glover Park. If you are driving or biking by the museum, it would be easy to mistake it for just another NW mansion, but it's more than that. It's the former home of David Lloyd Kreeger and his wife, Cameron. Professionally, David ran GEICO for years. Personally, he collected art and invested in developing the next generation of artists. His home now showcases his art collection in 4-5 rooms. However, the real gem is in the outdoor courtyard. It's beautifully designed and when the sunsets the light bounces off its design. There's a fountain too making it a dream location for a DC event. Around the corner from the courtyard is a sculpture garden that is not to be missed. If you're a DC local, it's a must-do. There's a suggested donation of $10 to get in and I recommend paying it to support the museum. They also have a history room when you enter with two restrooms and a coat closet.
  • Beautiful small museum in a very modern house which enhances the experience even more. They have some very unique Monet's, Picasso's, Kandinsky's, etc. The lady at the entrance was very pleasant and classy. The suggested donation is $10, they do not have a cafeteria on site. We spent about 40'.
  • Kill two birds with one stone in the Phillip Johnson designed home with an incredible art collection
  • Great small museum in a large home setting. Monets are fantastic! Need to return to see the downstairs and tour the outdoor sculptures when the HVAC system update is finished and the weather is a little warmer.
  • Excellent small art museum in a Philip Johnson designed house. One of Washington's hidden gems. Grab a sandwich after the museum Jetties.
