Living in DC, I feel very fortunate to have a lot of little gems of museums like The Phillips Collection at my doorstep. I've been to this museum a few times, most recently to view the Van Gogh repetitions, and I feel it's a great place for an event or to wile away an afternoon.
The art itself is impressive, and the collection is varied and comprehensive considering how much attention is given to going to the regular DC museums. While there is a price of admission, you're supporting a private collection that is funded, so I don't really have a problem with that. Also, they had an audio guide for free where you could call a number with your cellphone and that acted as the guide. I had never seen that before, and it was very convenient.
From the outside, you definitely can't tell what's inside, and I guess that's part of its charm. I'd definitely recommend a visit to The Phillips Collection.
