  • Closed when we were there but the gardens were open which made it not a totally wasted trip.
  • Stepping into Dumbarton House is stepping back in time to a true Federal Period house. One that is decorated as it was during the owner Joseph Nourse's time. The colors are eye-opening to say the least! The docents at Dumbarton know their subject. I have been there multiple times and am always impressed by the knowledge that is possessed by the volunteers.
  • A wonderful museum and event venue, but most importantly, Dumbarton House is NOT Dumbarton Oaks. The confusion is understandable, but Dumbarton Oaks is different.
  • Be nice if they updated their Website to indicate they are closed until April for Renovations. Wasted my time going there to find out they are closed.
  • Great piece of Georgetown history. The guide was a PhD and knew a load of local lore. It's worth a quick trip through if you're in the area.
