Dumbarton Oaks Reviews & Ratings
This place is really cool. The museum has free entry and is filled with some fascinating artifacts from Byzantium, Egypt, and several other places. The collection is not extensive but it is excellent. I really enjoyed browsing the pieces they had. The attached gardens do require a ticket but they let us in for free anyway because the ticket seller was not there when we got there. The gardens are very peaceful to walk around in. A great way to spend an afternoon.
The museum is free, but if you want to visit its garden, the admission is $10. You can buy the ticket at the gate of the garden or online. The garden is Italian style I very well designed and intriguing. It has lots of paths to go around. However, since those paths are very narrow, often rough, and hilly, I do not recommend to visit here if you have to use a wheelchair or a stroller.
Nice hidden gem we'd heard about while looking for fun places to stop by in Georgetown. The staff was very friendly and the exhibitions were beautiful.
It has been too Many years since I've been here, but like anything this beautiful, you eventually feel the pull/draw at your being telling you to come back/go back. I'll update this post asap after I return to this beautiful place:)
The museum flows very well, love all the pre-columbian works of art. Also visited the gardens which were wonderful!
