This museum is a hidden gem. The building and grounds are amazing. The collection, although small, is magnificent. The Picasso collection alone is worth the visit, but then you add a room full of Monet and another with VanGogh, Sisley, Redon and others you get a WOW. Will go again even if I can't get a groupon.

The tour was nice to get you thinking and asking questions. Good low key or rainy day activity. Not too crowded even on a holiday weekend.

Take the tour with a volunteer. You learn so much more about the Kreegers, their house, and their art collection.

It is all in the guide: ours was fantastic; her passion was contagious (and I am NOT an art afficionado); she had a difficult time not talking about certain pieces :-). Go when the weather is nice as the garden is fun to explore and contains a few more pieces of art.

From Our Editors

In 1959, David and Carmen Kreeger began a personal collection of modern art, forming a shared vision based on creative passion instead of investment. David Kreeger himself said, ?Art that embodies the creative spirit of men transcends the value of money." In 1994, four years after David?s death, the Kreeger Museum opened under the direction of Judy A. Greenberg with the mission of enhancing ?the understanding and appreciation of art, architecture and music,? three of the Kreegers? lifelong passions and favorite Jeopardy! categories.

Today, their personal acquisitions form the foundation of a collection of 19th- and 20th-century paintings from masters such as Monet, C?zanne, and Picasso, along with works of traditional African and Asian art. Art pervades every inch of the museum campus, from the 5.5-acre wooded sculpture garden surrounding the building to the building itself designed by Pritzker Prize?winning architect Philip Johnson using a modernist approach and limestone imported from Italy. The building uses light and movement to guide visitors through the great hall, gallery spaces, and recital hall for performances of Beethoven?s B-sides.
