We went on a group tour that was very nice. Collection is small but excellent. Of particular interest were early works by Mondrian and Van Gogh that were unusual and unlike what we usually think of when think of these artists. Building itself is worthwhile.

Was looking for something to do while waiting to pick up family from a hospital visit...this is only 10 mins from Sibley Memorial hospital over Georgetown way. It is a terrific small collection, with Pissarro, Van Gogh, Monet, Picasso, Rubens statues, Mondrian, Kandinsky and many...More

This former residence now houses a stunning big-name art collection. This museum is open during very specific hours so check first before you go.

I highly recommend the guided tours--the docent on my tour was very knowledgable about the artwork and added context one wouldn't get just by looking at the art. The lower level is currently closed for renovations (as of September 2017). There's limited parking onsite -...More

Little gem of a contemporary art collection in a fantastic Philip Johnson designed home/museum. The outdoor sculpture garden is still under construction but there are about a dozen of the outdoor pieces still on view.

We took a one hour docent led tour. Well worth it! Provided insight to the Kreegers as well as the architect, Philip Johnson. The Kreegers' private home filled with Monet, Picasso, and Rodin to name a few. So glad we decided to visit!!

The Kreegers hired renowned architect Philip Johnson to design their home on Foxhall Road to house their fabulous collection of 19th and 20th century art. The design anticipated that one day the building would become a museum, which is open to the public. Docents lead...More

Fantastic under the radar museum. Incredible collection of Monet's, Picasso's and Kandinsky's. Free but they ask for a donation; $10 is fair. Check out website for hours of guided tours. Give yourself an hour. Plenty of off street parking available. GO!

I can't believe that I have never been here before. It is difficult to get there on public transportation, but if you have a car it is really easy and they have free parking. Mr. Kreeger (CEO of Geico) had an impressive art collection and...More
