Glenstone’s Amazing Art & Landscapes – New!
1 session • 7.5 hours
Set in the rolling hills of Potomac, Maryland, Glenstone Museum features a world class collection of iconic post-WWII modern art pieces. More than a museum, Glenstone seamlessly integrates art, architecture, and landscape into a serene and contemplative environment. It’s an immersive transportive art and environmental experience like no other. Begin with a brief introduction to Glenstone and then spend the morning exploring the collection and grounds. After lunch on your own at the locally sourced and seasonally driven cafe, we’ll depart for Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard in Montgomery County’s Agricultural Reserve. Enjoy an overview of Maryland wine and, if you choose, samples of French-style vintage wines. Join us for an autumn experience to savor.
