Heurich House Museum, Washington DC
(4.7/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • They visited the House of German beer Brewer and his family. One learns much about backgrounds and furnishing the House, gets but also a vivid impression of the life of the family. Good to visit even with children. There is a lift.

  • 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!
  • Really cool house museum off DuPont. Great place to check it if you're in to the Victorian era or beer.
  • 'It was a great experience. The house is very delicate inside, it was the most up to date house a hundred year ago. This is place is not so well known, so only 8 people joined the visit on Saturday. You can ask whatever you want to know.
  • This should be one of the "must see" sites in Washington, DC. The museum is incredible. Original fixtures, furniture and decorations, all well preserved throughout the house. An extremely knowledgeable, friendly and outgoing museum Director, Scott, who knows so much about the house, furnishings and family that you feel like you are talking to a family member! The entire tour gives you an incredible snapshot into life in Washington DC during this time period. I can't recommend it enough!
