The Dumbarton Oaks Museum features the extraordinary art collection begun by Mildred and Robert Woods Bliss in the early 20th century. The unique galleries are an extension to the Historic House, including the Phillip Johnson Pavilion and the Music Room.
The exhibitions feature collections of Byzantine and Pre-Columbian art and European masterpieces. We'll also feature a special exhibition, "All Sides Considered: New Research on the Maya Collection."
