1 Hour at a Late 19th-Century Home & Museum Near Downtown DC

Located inside the area of DC known locally at “The Golden Triangle,” discover the Heurich House Museum, a mansion of a local brewer that regularly hosts events.

The Golden Triangle is the 43-block central business district that stretches from the front yard of the White House to Dupont Circle. It is home to prestigious businesses, superb restaurants, unique museums and art exhibitions, national parks such as Farragut Square, the city’s premier live comedy club, and classic hotels, such as The Hay-Adams and Mayflower. Stroll and shop along Connecticut Avenue, take a power walk on K Street, enjoy fine dining on 19th Street, and take in the nightlife along M Street.

For those arriving to town early on Friday, June 2, join Golden Triangle’s fun “Farragut Fridays” in the park at Farragut Square, located at Connecticut Avenue and K Street NW. At sunset, we’ll kick off our Golden Cinema summer series with a showing of the Academy Award-nominated Hidden Figures!

Tour the Heurich House Museum

1307 New Hampshire Avenue NW At the turn of the 20th century, Dupont Circle and the mansions lining its grand avenues were central to DC’s fashion and social scenes. Only a few of those homes have survived until today. None are as intact as the Heurich House Museum, also known as the Brewmaster’s Castle, which preserves the legacy of Christian Heurich, a local brewer and philanthropist of German descent, who built the mansion. Public tours are available Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. Suggested donation of $10.
