Thirty six (36) DCGIA members and guests enjoyed a tour of the “Spectacular Gems and Jewelry” which was Marjorie Merriweather Post’s jewel collection on display at Hillwood Museum in DC.
The tour featured an introduction to the collection by Angie Dodson, Director of Learning, then access to look at the collection on our own. We congregated at the cafe afterwards for lunch and members then returned to see the collection again and a visit to the main house to see the collection of art, furniture and other collections.
We highly recommend the Hillwood Museum as a must see attraction for everyone visiting the DC area!
We thank Tim Morgan (DCGIA Treasurer) and the Hillwood Staff for coordinating this tour opportunity for us.
