This is now so much easier to both get to and to depart because of uber. In a beautiful section of DC, with beautiful homes, this austere executive manse was designed by Philip Johnson. Has some wonderful paintings and sculpture, indoors and out.

Very good collection of impressionist and modern artists: Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh, Chagall, Picasso, Mondrian, Degas, Gorky, Braque. The building is of interesting architectural design, access to the exterior of the building and the sculpture garden included in the admission. Free parking. They conduct tours every hour or so at no extra charge. The tour takes about an hour.

This is a a superb private, extremely well curated collection. About 25 minutes by bus from downtown, it is well worth the visit if you love modern art and the impressionists. There is also a small outdoor sculpture display. Open on weekends. Note that Dunbarton Oaks is on the same bus route and could combine to make a excursion.

Great little place. Need reservations, $10 adult, $7 student. Guided tour through a converted residence. Wonderful selection of art including; Monet, Van Gough, Renoir, Picasso artwork. Also a very nice assortment of sculpture work. Tour guide very informative and knowledgeable. Take a Uber from DC ($11) and the tour lasts about 2 hours. Recommend highly.

I went with family to do something different when in town for a wedding. The location is kind of hard to find with the GPS. It was ten dollars per adult, and well worth it. I was able to see fine art and sculptures up close. The fountains outside were beautiful. It does not take long to see all the... More

It's good to be the king. Mr. Kreeger made lots of money but he knew how to spend it. The museum building, the former Kreeger family residence designed by Philip Johnson, is itself worth the visit. The collection of paintings from Picasso, Braque, Cesanne and many others is outstanding. Strolling through the museum and it's garden on a bright fall... More

Hmmmm. I don't usually like to dis a cultural institution that's trying but my biggest takeaway from my visit here is that the great art in DC came from elsewhere and while there was local interest in art, it never reached the level of sophistication of New York, Chicago or Los Angeles. It's not a surprise that some of the... More

The Kreeger Museum offers a striking collection of beautifully curated art by names you will instantly recognize. The have work by Monet, Renoir, Pissaro, Sisley, and a staggering number of Picassos. These are not sketches or weak work either, but strong, interesting pieces any art lover should take in. The fee is $10, but there are student/senior discounts available. Also,... More
