For 27 years, this jewel of a museum was a Washington secret, hidden behind its wall on Foxhall Road in northwest Washington. Passersby could only glimpse the magnificent structure through the gates and wonder what treasures it contained.

In 1994, all that changed. The Kreeger Museum, former home of local philanthropists Carmen and David Lloyd Kreeger, opened to the public. This masterpiece of modern architecture is set within five and a half acres of sculpture-filled gardens and tranquil woods. Designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson, it is among the few examples of his work in DC.

Highlights of the collection include works by Monet, van Gogh, Picasso, Miró, Rodin, Moore, Cezanne, Braque, and Chagall and prominent Washington artists Bill Christenberry, Gene Davis, and Sam Gilliam. Also included in the collection are outstanding examples of traditional African and Asian art. The art and architecture is contextualized through the Museum's programs, special exhibitions, and educational outreach initiatives, including lectures, concerts, master classes, panel discussions, artist talks, and interactive children's programs.
