Hillwood Museum is housed in Marjorie Merriweather Post's Georgian-style mansion. With her northwest Washington, D.C. estate she endowed the nation with the most comprehensive collection of Russian imperial art outside of Russia, a distinguished 18th-century French decorative art collection, and twenty-five acres of serene landscaped gardens and natural woodlands.

The collections include outstanding examples of 18th-century French decorative art, nearly 90 Fabergé items including eggs, and other Russian Imperial art, including icons, chalices, porcelain, and liturgical objects.
