  • Very detailed tours, friendly tour guides, and an incredible historic house! The Heurich House Museum makes a great stop while touring DC or for the locals, a break from the National Mall tourist traps!

  • We visited the museum with the kids and it was a fun experience. Learning the history about a successful immigrant story and seeing the castle preserved in its original form for so many years was amazing. A nice guided and small tour.

  • Fun and beautiful Victorian townhome. Lacks some original furniture but the interiors are mostly intact. Definitely make a fun play on the beer-connected history of the home.

  • Employees doing the tour were phenomenal! I loved the warmth of the home and feeling of going back in history. My only disappointment was how there is not enough funding to repair the upper floors. The Christmas market was especially fun for my little 3 year olds. This house is one of my top recommendations for vistors!

  • Heurich House Museum is a mansion from the Gilded Age just south of Dupont Circle. For a home in the city, it's massive, but for a museum, it's small. It's truly a museum/event space for locals, not tourists (though, tourists are welcome). The Heurich House is the mansion of Christian Heurich, a German immigrant who was the oldest brewer (he died at age 102) and big time business owner in DC. Outside of the government, he owned the most amount of land and employed the most amount of people. His large brewery now houses the Kennedy Center. This home is a historic property remembering Christian Heurich's legacy in DC. They offer tours (suggested donation of $10) Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays that last an hour long. In addition to that, they always have events from book clubs to brewing classes to a famous Christmas market every year. What most people don't know is they have a large garden in the back open to the public Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm. They have benches, picnic tables, and even an art gallery in the carriage house for people to enjoy for free. It's the perfect respite from the city!
