Lonely Planet review
One of DC’s more obscure attractions, this little-known museum is tucked away in the hills northwest of Georgetown and houses a fantastic collection of 20th-century modernist art. The art – by Renoir, Picasso and Mark Rothko, among many others – represents the amassed collection of David and Carem Kreeger. Their individual taste adds a charming degree of intimacy to the experience; you feel more like you’re popping into a home than visiting a museum. Speaking of visiting, you must do so on 90-minute, reservation-only tours unless you come for the Friday and Saturday open houses. Exhibits are constantly rotated, so you’re just as likely to see Monet’s dappled impressionism as Edvard Munch’s dark expressionism. Head west on Reservoir Rd NW about a half-mile to Foxhall Rd; turn right and the museum is about a mile onward.
