Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens is the grand, former estate of Post Cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post. Located on 25 acres in a lovely residential neighborhood in Northwest DC, Hillwood is merely five miles north of the White House and two miles from the National Zoo and National Cathedral.

This estate is Mrs. Post's gift to the public. Come discover her fabulous lifestyle and the treasures she's left us to enjoy—a Georgian Mansion, the most comprehensive collection of Russian Imperial objects outside of Russia including Faberge Eggs and Russian Orthodox icons, 18th century French decorative arts, tapestries and porcelain. Enjoy 13 acres of formal gardens including a Japanese-style garden with waterfalls, a working greenhouse filled with 2,500 orchids, and a cutting garden that provides fresh flowers throughout the estate.

Guests usually take a half day to enjoy the estate, to shop and to grab a bite to eat at the Café.
