I visited this museum last Saturday and found the house tour interesting and informative. The house was built by a German immigrant who founded a brewery on the site where the Kennedy Center is today. The brewery lasted until 1956 and was noted for its Senate brand beer. The house was a wonder in its time and had the most up to date features like combination electric and gas lamps as well as a central vacuum system. The décor and construction reflect the German roots of Mr. Heurich, who lived to the ripe old age of 102. Heavy wood paneling throughout as well as a basement rathskellar were notable. The tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and answered all questions. The tour group was a bit too large though and I think detracted a little from the experience. There is a $5.00 admission fee. It was very worthwhile and a real bargain.
