Heurich House Museum
1307 New Hampshire Ave NW
On Saturday, March 16, 2019 from 11am-2pm, the Heurich House Museum will open its doors for free, kid-friendly, self-guided tours. Kids in the Castle gives families the chance to explore the ornate details of the Heurich family home. Children and parents are invited to wander through the house at their own pace and complete a photo scavenger hunt to win prizes. Once visitors have finished their tour, they can relax and play games in the museum’s Castle Garden (weather permitting).
Typically, the museum is not open to children under 10, but during this special event, children are the main focus.
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.
Guests may arrive at the museum anytime between 11am and 2pm. Touring through the house will take between 30 minutes and 1 hour. There will be two levels of hunting to accommodate all ages!
This event is free, but registration is suggested.
