Every part of the estate is fabulous - the grounds, the house, the greenhouse, the dacha. A real 'wow' experience!

We visited Hillwood Estate Museum and Gardens recently on vacation and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful mansion and gardens. Hope to visit again in the spring or summer.

Such a beautiful place! We thoroughly enjoyed wandering the grounds before taking a guided tour of the house. Our tour guide Paul was so knowledgeable and gave a fun and insightful tour. The French and Russian art and artifacts in the museum are dazzling and the home itself is in such beautiful condition. The temporary Grace Kelly and Dior exhibit was really interesting as well. We loved the estate so much that we decided to become members!
A hidden DC gem. The gardens are beautiful! We went on a rainy day and I felt transported to England. The Japanese garden is lovely. The museum is fascinating, an impressive collection of Russian art. The museum staff are friendly and very helpful in providing more information and background. A must visit
