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

The Kreeger Museum is a gem! It's small, and the opportunity to see and wander around the museum building designed by Philip Johnson is worth the trip by itself. However, the Kreeger has a great small collection heavily laden with Monets and Picassos. They were...More

Niche museum in a distinctive building with a carefully selected collection of modern art. It includes some outstanding paintings by Monet, Renoir, and Picasso. Lovely sculpture garden. Not crowded, especially in the morning. Free guided tours are also scheduled quite frequently. Suggested admission fee is...More

Kreeger was a founder/CEO of Geico Insurance, amassed an incredible Impresisionist/Post-Impressionist art collection, then had architect Philip Johnson design this residence as a museum for their collection. Quite a place for a private event like the one we attended. You have to love the "Manet...More

After living in Washington DC for over 15 years I was shocked to find this private collections. It's an amazing two-story Museum filled with sculpture and art with very well-lit rooms.

Although not near a metro stop, this is a very nice art museum. I gave it only 4/5 simply because we are not huge fans of modern art. The house itself is tranquil-it was obviously well designed. The collection of Picasso is impressive and the...More
