Heurich House Museum, Washington DC

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.

  • This historical house tells a great story and is a authentic picture of life for the well heeled in the late 1800's. The docent did an excellent job creating a picture of the times and character who l...  more »

  • This place is amazing! You should definitely tour this excellent Dupont Circle historic site. There's plenty to see, and the wonderful staff are really knowledgeable.
  • The house is absolutely beautiful. It was great to take a tour of it and really understand the kind of opulence that you read about in The Great Gatsby. I was here for a beer tasting and after one visit I'm ready to become a member. The tour guides have a wealth of knowledge not just about Christian Heurich but also about the time period where he did his business. I'll definitely be coming here much more often.
  • Absolutely worth the tour! Beautiful, striking tour and very interesting and informative tour guides. Only takes an hour, so definitely drop by of you're in the area.
  • The house tour is definitely worth the time. Usually, it requires a reservation. DC doesn't have that many mansions open to the public.
  • Got married here. It was gorgeous and the people working were amazing. I could not ask for a better wedding venue.

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.
