Lucille Theis' Virtual Visit to Washington, DC


Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens

is a decorative arts museum in Washington, D.C.. The former residence of businesswoman, socialite, philanthropist and collector Marjorie Merriweather Post, Hillwood is known for its large decorative arts collection that focuses heavily on the House of Romanov, including Fabergé eggs. Other highlights are 18th and 19th century French art and one of the country's finest orchid collections.


A Welcome from Lizzie Axelson



The Orchid Greenhouse

Many of the buildings and part of the estate were closed due to COVID although there were beautiful places to walk on the grounds and the mansion was open.

A Peek Inside the Mansion. I took photos and videos and then (oops) was told to stop.
