This is an old house that was expanded into a gallery of modern art. It houses one of the world's most popular paintings, Luncheon of the Boating Party by Auguste Renoir. It's spectacular. The gallery itself is made up of relatively small rooms, especially the older part which was the residence of the Phillips family. I'm not a scholar of art, but it was fascinating to explore the rooms, view the paintings and even see the beautifully-tiled fireplaces in the older rooms. The Gallery is a VERY easy, attractive, short walk from the Dupont Circle Metro station on the Red Line. There's a nice little cafe onsite and a good gift shop.
