The Kreeger Museum, is one of Washington DC’s lesser known art museums, but is definitely worth a visit.
The Kreeger Museum, located in NW Washington DC, is a former mansion owned by David and Carmen Kreeger. The home was built by architect Philip Johnson, and sits on five and a half acres of woods and gardens. This private, non-profit museum holds the Kreeger’s collection 19th and 20th century paintings including the works of Monet, Picasso, Renoir, Cézanne, Chagall, Miró, and Stella. It also includes displays of traditional African and Asian art, as well as a large sculpture garden featuring Henry Moore and Aristide Maillol.
