Tour a mid-20th century estate in our nation's capital.

Located in northwest Washington, D.C., Hillwood Estate Museum and Gardens is a lovely attraction open for tours. This was the home of Marjorie Merriweather Post, an American philanthropist and owner of Post Cereal (established by her father), which became the General Foods Corporation in later years. She was a sophisticated woman who collected French and Russian fine art pieces and furniture. Her parties were some of the best in the D.C. area, and she generously gave donations to several causes.

Hillwood Estate has been a museum since 1977 and is currently open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. There is always something new to see at the museum with its rotating exhibits. Be sure to stroll outside in the gardens before you leave. There are 6 areas to explore, including a Japanese-style and European-style garden. Rest assured, there is always something new blooming every season. Most people spend about 3 hours at the Hillwood Estate and Gardens, but you can go at your own pace during a self-guided tour.
