The former Washington residence of famed businesswoman, socialite, and art collector Marjorie Merriweather Post, Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens combines outdoor beauty with items from Post's vast collection of prerevolutionary Russian art and 18th century French furnishings. Admission (a $15 value) includes a 15-minute orientation film; access to the Georgian mansion, gardens, and greenhouse; and parking, providing a berth for pollen-powered unicycles. Guests can feast eyes on such treasures as Fabergé eggs and ornate chalices, and an exhibition of the Post family's wedding dresses showcases 20th century nuptial finery. The 25-acre estate is split between gorgeously manicured gardens and faux-rural woodland, allowing guests to stroll through a range of plant-based beauty. After perusing natural and manmade treasures, sip a complimentary coffee, cappuccino, or café latte (up to a $3.50 value) and take advantage of a 10% discount at the museum store by buying souvenirs to butter up cantankerous parole officers.
