Glenstone in its current state of development is a beautiful place. When it is completed, it just might end up being one of, if not the best, art museums in the DC area. Of course much of this will have to do with the Rales art collection itself, which, due to space limitations, little is available for public viewing. Instead the museum offers solo or small group shows drawn from the collection. Generally, if the Rales like an artist they collect deep. The current building is 22,000 square feet and they are building a 150,000 square foot complex of connected pavilions to expand the gallery space. The collection is comprised of Post-World War II contemporary and modern art. So, depending on your viewpoint, it might be the greatest thing you have ever seen...or it could be crap. Admittance is free, with time scheduled appointments made via their website. Each group is capped at 12 people and you are given a docent led tour of the galleries. Tours last approximately one hour. We had ten people in our group with two docents...it's about as private a tour as one can get. Glenstone is very much in an infant stage. Over the coming years, it has the potential to turn into something truly spectacular.
I'm sure you know this, but others may not: Manor Hill Brewery is based right there in Ellicott City. The Marriner family also owns Victoria Gastro Pub, and will be opening another restaurant, FoodPlenty, hopefully later this year.
