If you are a fan of great modern art and architecture the Kreeger is a must visit while in the DC area. It is a bit out of the way, in the Foxhall neighborhood above Georgetown, but that keeps the crowds down. The building was designed by the great architect Phillip Johnson to be a private residence that also properly... More

In preparing for our trip, we always look at the websites of each place we will visit to get opening and closing times. The museums' website did not indicate that it was closed for the entire month of August. We took the bus and then walked the remaining mile. Once the gates did not open ten minutes past the opening... More

This is a wonderful place to visit, particularly if you like comtemparay architecture (Phillipe Johnson designed home), impressionist and modern paintings and sculptures. It is a short taxi ride from downtown. Both the indoor space and the outdoor gardens are oh so splendid--a very unique place any where on earth. The best way is by taking a tour Friday or... More

Originally a private home to David and Carmen Kreeger, even while they lived there, it was a museum and designed to entertain. From Renoir, Monet, Picasso and more; there are amazing pieces here from all styles of art. The home itself is very contemporary in design and there are amazing contemporary pieces as well. There is plenty of time and... More

The Kreeger Museum is tucked away on the north-western side of DC, in a mainly residential neighbourhood and close to a section of Rock Creek Park. As if it that wasn't enough, it is only open on certain days of the week and often requires pre-booking. Having said all that, it is absolutely worth visiting. The museum is chock-full of... More

I had a groupon to visit the Kreeger. Was really not expecting much but had always wanted to see the building. What a surprise to find not only a splendid piece of architecture but the most fabulous collection of Impressionist and Modern art. Being able to see Monets, VanGogh, Sisley, Cezanne, juxtapositioned with Picasso and Kandinsky was beyond wonderful. It... More

The Kreeger Museum is a gift to the city by the founder of GEICO. The home was designed by Phillip Johnson in the 1960's, and is full of impressionist and modern paintings and sculpture, including many by local artists. I went with friends on a weekday for a guided tour. For $10 it's a bargain. Parking is available.

This site reflects many reviews that the Kreeger is a hidden gem, and it is. It probably isn’t more famous because it’s just a little bit out of the way. While in Washington D.C., it is a good 20 minutes from the National Mall and not easy to get to via public transportation. Whether you have your own car or... More

This museum is not open every day. Be sure to check their website. I visited on a Saturday afternoon and was just in time to catch a one-hour tour of the building and art. I'm so glad I did because I would have had an incomplete visit without it, I believe. The museum was built to be both a home... More
