Tucked amid the beautiful row houses of Dupont Circle this modern art museum was established in 1921 in a Georgian Revival house that once was the family home of museum founder, Duncan Phillips. The setting is at once intimate and sophisticated, making it a favorite for Washingtonians. The modern art museum focuses on Impressionist and modern art, and outdoes itself on both accounts. The permanent collection boasts Renoir’s famous "Luncheon of the Boating Party," as well as works by Georgia O’Keefe, Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, and Richard Diebenkorn. An intimate Rothko Room consists of a lone bench surrounded by four of the abstract expressionist's paintings. The Phillips Collection is currently celebrating its 100th anniversary, and to commemorate the centennial, visual artist Daniel Canogar created a digital piece using an algorithm to meld 550 pieces from the museum's collection into a mesmerizing, swirling projection.

One of the best collections of modern art in the country. Take the Metro to Dupont Circle (20 minutes) and you're there!
