Hidden in the Foxhall Crescent neighborhood, in northwest D.C., the Kreeger is a small museum, ideal for a low-key morning or afternoon. It is the former residence of David and Carmen Kreeger and holds their personal art collection, which includes paintings by Monet, Picasso, Renoir,...More

I just loved this museum. The home in which it is housed is such unique architecture. The grounds are lovely. The small taste of the life of these two people is a wonderful story of coming out of modest means to gain wealth and then...More

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.

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.

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!!
