I've lived in DC for years and never knew this museum existed. The Dupont Kalorama Museums Consortium organized an open house walk weekend so I walked in. What a gem! Built in 1842, this 4 story house on New Hampshire is on the National Register...More

It may look like a set from Harry Potter but walk through the doors of the Christian Heurich House Museum and you step back in time. The house is beautifully preserved. Well worth the trip!
