The Kreeger Museum is an art museum located in the former home of David Lloyd Kreeger and Carmen Kreeger. The Kreeger collection comprises mainly works from the 1850s to the present. The Impressionists are represented by nine Claude Monet paintings, as well as works by Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley, and Camille Pissarro. From his early work to the end of his life, Pablo Picasso's career can be traced through his paintings at the Kreeger. Other 20th century European artists include Edvard Munch, Max Beckmann, Jean Dubuffet, Wassily Kandinsky, and Joan Miro. American artists include, among others, Alexander Calder, Clyfford Still, Frank Stella and James Rosenquist.

The permanent collection also includes outstanding examples of traditional art from west and central Africa and Asia.
