“Lovely spot, easy and enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

I had put off going to the Kreeger for years thinking it was on par with the old Barnes collection location outside Philly in terms of hassle. No, no, no! Easy as pie! No reservations required and a nice tour through the whole collection to boot. Pleasant and perfect. Gave it a 4/5 only because I would have liked more facts and elevated energy on the tour, but still well worth it. Our tour group was quite large as well (could've been two groups)...

Go to the Kreeger! Don't wait like I did!

“Amazing Museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Took a mid-week tour of the Kreeger Museum with friends. Our guide, Barbara, was fantastic. Her 90 minute tour was full of information about the house, the family and the art - which is spectacular. Reservations are required during the week for tours; parking is available. While the museum does not have a restaurant, a short drive away is a wonderful diverse selection.

“Idiosynchratic collection housed in an interesting structure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Easily overlooked, this small museum in upper Georgetown has a world-class eclectic mix of modern art, African art, Impressionists, sculpture, and folk art. The docent-led tour was a bit superficial and the grounds were a disappointment, but the work stands on its own. Get a Groupon and treat yourself to some fine examples of Picasso and Monet. Parking is free but space is limited.

“X off the Kreeger from Bucket list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Visited the Kreeger Museum for the first time in April and I am planning to return again in a few weeks to take a tour. I used a Groupon, and took a lot of photos which I will share since the previous reviews accurately describe a visit to this little gem on 5 acres with free onsite parking. The impressive collection of artwork displayed in a unique home by Architecht Phillip Johnson and sculpture gardens. A very relaxing and exhilarating cultural experience viewing some of the best paintings and sculptures without the crowds of larger institutions. My husband was scheming a way to spend a few nights in the museum. The best I could do was buy him a catalog. Maybe he will bring me back for a concert.... How would I rate the day? Priceless!

“Nice Museum Often Overlooked for the Larger Ones”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Sometimes the mall is crowded so that is a good time to visit some of the smaller museums in the area. We have a ton of them, this one is especially nice.
