Heurich House Museum to open its doors for a Kids in the Castle!
On Saturday, May 6, 2017, the Heurich House Museum will open its doors for free, kid-friendly, self-guided tours. Kids in the Castle allows visitors to explore the gilded details of the Heurich family home at their own pace. Children and their parents are invited to wander through the house and complete a photo scavenger hunt to win prizes, then head to the museum garden to play games and relax.
Since opening its doors, the Heurich House Museum has had restricted access for children. This event, the second in the Kids in the Castle series taking place throughout the year, allows children to experience the Heurich House Museum in a way they have not been able to before. This German influenced family home provides visitors a glimpse of the past, and exposes children to a different time in DC’s history. Children can let their imaginations wander as they take in three floors of this ornate mansion, while also learning about history in a fun and engaging environment.
Registration for this event is closed, as the event has sold out. Please join us at our next Kids in the Castle!
About Heurich House Museum: The Heurich House Museum preserves the legacy of Christian Heurich and enriches the cultural life of Washington, DC.

Heurich Brewing Co. until his death at 102. The mansion is notable for its technological innovations, original interiors, and rich archival collection of one of the most important local families. The museum, located at 1307 New Hampshire Avenue in Dupont Circle, is open for regular public events and public tours Thursday through Saturday at 11:30 am, 1:00 and 2:30 pm.
