Trip Report Day Trip to Hillwood Museum in DC

Jump to last reply

Forgot to write about this wonderful home that my arts group visited in May. It was the home of Marjorie Merriweather Post (as in cereal). She collected Russian artifacts when her then hub was an Ambassador and all things royal or religious were being sold of "cheap".

The gardens are as beautiful as the house and there is a greenhouse filled with orchids. Also on the grounds is a little house built to look like a dacha-it had a photo exhibit but I didn't have time to explore.

There is a separate welcome center (with a great gift shop), and another building with a cafe with indoor and outdoor seating. Food was B+ but our service was very slow.

If historic homes is your "thing", I'd recommend this. I didn't take any notes so I have forgotten most of the interesting details. Oh, there is a dog cemetery with aptly-named plantings like dogwoods, forget-me-nots, etc.
