We loved the docent tour. Great collection. What a gem after crowded Smithsonian. It's suggested donation $10. Very classy

This is a lovely private home-turned-museum, that brings you up close to some wonderful works of art from Monets to Picassos to a Calder—without the crowds. Although the home is mostly unfurnished now, it's still a much different feeling to see art this way than...More

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

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.

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
