Fodor's Review

The cool white domes and elegant lines of this postmodern landmark stand in stark contrast to the traditional feel of the rest of the Foxhall Road neighborhood. Designed in 1963 by iconic architect Philip Johnson, the building was once the home of GEICO insurance executive David Lloyd Kreeger and his wife Carmen. Music is a central theme of the art and the space: the Kreegers wanted a showpiece residence that would also function as a gallery and recital hall. The art collection

includes works by Renoir, Degas, Cézanne, and Munch, African artifacts, and outstanding examples of Asian art. The domed rooms also have wonderful acoustics, and serve as an excellent performance venue for the classical concerts that are regularly performed here. Information about upcoming performances is available on the museum's website. The museum is not reachable by Metro; you need to take a car or taxi to get here.
