So beautiful, interesting, and free. I wish the indoor exhibits would change more often and that there would be a place for coffee. The docents are smart and knowledgeable. Easy to park.

this is a private collection on the private estate. Now in expansion for even more amazing works to be displayed. Huge sculptures dot the grounds.

This is a private museum open to the public with reservations. They are in the process of building an additional museum that will house more of the owner's modern art. Worth a visit.

The drive to Glenstone is a treat also. Rolling country with some very expensive homes to view. Some very nice, others a little garish. But beautiful scenery. The museum was a little hard to find on Saturday. I did miss the entrance and then doubled...More

Glenstone provides a revelatory experience and an opportunity to view modern art works of the highest quality. For days after each visit, I ruminate on the ways the visit opened my eyes to new facets of art. Set in a magnificently sculptured landscape and housed...More

I live a stones throw away from Glenstone and for years, I have been intrigued by the construction of this "compound" and all the security measures that are in place. Needless to say, "Google" comes in handy and reading up on Mitchell and Emily Rales,...More

Glenstone is nothing less than spectacular and is truly the first homegrown art collection in Washington DC that is on a par with those in New York or California. It's very much the 21st century equivalent of the Frick Museum in which an industrialist with...More

We visited the museum today only to find one artist's work in the whole museum. The show of Roni Horn could easily fit in one room of the museum and has a very limited appeal to me. I have seen similar pieces before and found...More
