If you're looking to view some art and willing to think outside the box, then the Phillips Collection is totally worth the price. Not only does this museum house some beautiful, classic pieces from artists like Manet and Renoir, but it features more contemporary, unknown artists with very unique pieces. Some of the art may require you to really open your mind, but why not? Phillips After 5 is also a nice event to check out on Thursdays when you get out of work but want to break away from the standard happy hour routine. Try something like wine or bourbon from featured sellers of that night, nosh on some hors d'oeurves, and just take your time soaking in the creativity. Your brain will thank you.

t just keeps getting better and better. A friend of mine from France said that, when "The Boating Party" was loaned to a Paris museum (from the Phillips), lines to see it were blocks and blocks long. The French stood in front of it and cried. That story really gave me a new appreciation for "The Boating Party" in particular (am not usually a big Renoir fan) and also for the collection as a whole. Always a surprise - and a comfort at the same time. And who could not like the mansion setting, especially when there are live concerts there on Sunday afternoons.

Pros: great traveling exhibits

Cons: pricey

This museum was founded by Duncan Phillips, grandson of the founder of the Jones and Laughlin Steel Company. The Phillips Collection is housed in the family's former mansion which gives it a personable feeling. The collection includes modern art by renowned French and Italian artists such as Monet, Picasso, Miro, Renoir, and Van Gogh, among other modern masters. I would recommend this museum to art lovers.
