History Museum Historic Site
The Heurich House Museum preserves the legacy of historic brewer Christian Heurich (1842-1956) and enriches the cultural life of Washington, DC. Recognized as Washington, D.C.’s most successful brewer, Heurich built his Chr. Heurich Brewing Co. into one of the most important manufacturing businesses in the city, and the last surviving pre-Prohibition brewery. He and his family lived in their Dupont Circle mansion from its completion in 1894 until his wife’s death in 1956. The historic home is notable for its technological innovations and original interiors, as well as a rich archival collection of the city’s most important historic families. Today the building operates as a museum, and is open for regular public events, exhibitions, tours, and private event rentals.

  • Great venue for small wedding ceremony (we had 25 people and was plenty of space)!! It doesn't need any decorations, great acoustics, perfect layout to avoid first looks before ceremony, and great photo opportunities (e.g., stairwell, large windows, balcony, corner of conservatory). Make sure to get a photographer that can handle lighting as it can get tricky based on time of day....test shots are recommended. You get a day of event coordinator with the price which we found to be extremely valuable!! Main point is to be on time because you will have to rush to get your photos done after the ceremony. Otherwise just pay for extra time to avoid that if important to you.
  • We went for Kids in the Castle and the photo scavenger hunt was a great way to be introduced to such a unique venue. Thoroughly surprised by the decor, the original moldings and ceiling canvases, the furniture, the history, the statues, the everything.
  • Great to see the Victoria Era on full display!. Wish we could have seen above the 2nd floor though, even if it's been modernized.
  • Perhaps the only surviving historic home in Dupont Circle; great history and gorgeous examples of American baroque/rococo stylings. Beautiful sculpture, paintings, and furniture inside. The sculpture atop the tower is a salamander!
  • A beautiful gilded age masion with the first two floors preserved, including original furnishings. Well worth the guided tour!

Where to stay in Washington DC

Most visitors to Washington, D.C., end up in the East End, the old downtown district containing most of the city's major cultural attractions. For a more authentic Washingtonian experience, consider staying at a smaller hotel just a little north or east of this busy area. Neighborhoods outside downtown offer less expensive accommodations and affordable street parking, as well as opportunities to meet more locals and fewer tourists. Alternatively, try a hotel in Georgetown, packed with high-end shops and Colonial architecture.
