The relaxed homey atmosphere of this museum makes it a great place to take visitors. Don't miss the Thursday night events or any musical presentation. Relax in the cafe or gift shop.

My mom has taken me to The Phillips Collection multiple times in the past, but when I went back as an adult, I was blown away. I love their collection of Monets and Renoir. Great place for the art lover!
