During Spring when the flowers are in bloom and Fall when the leaves are turning colors, a visit to Dunbarton Oaks is a delight. Take your camera. There will be plenty of photo opportunities. Take you children, too. There are plenty of places for them to play hide and seek.

The gardens include a rose garden, an English country garden, an Orangery, geometric gardens, and a series of terraces. They were designed by Beatrix Farrand.

Museum admission: $1. Gardens admission: $3 adults, $1 seniors.
