Stretch your legs and your mind during the 34th Annual Dupont Kalorama Museum Walk (June 3 and 4, 2017). Five diverse museums will open their doors free of charge for this weekend long celebration in one of Washington, D.C.’s most beautiful neighborhoods. Discover Anderson House, Dumbarton House, National Museum of American Jewish Military History, The Phillips Collection, and the President Woodrow Wilson House free of charge.
In addition to a wide variety of exhibitions, all sites are offering special programming. Celebrate the grand re-opening of Dumbarton House with postcards and yoga, and hear stories from WWII veterans as well as genealogy tips at the National Museum of American Jewish Military History. Get creative with Jazz n’ Family Fun Days at The Phillips Collection, make your own Remembrance Poppy at Wilson House and a tricorn hat or WWI overseas cap at Anderson House. And be sure to post your walk weekend photos on Instagram with the hashtag #walkdkmc – the best image submitted during the weekend wins a prize! Learn more about special programming.
The Museum Walk event is held rain or shine. The National Museum of American Jewish Military History is open Sunday only. The Phillips Collection will open at Noon on Sunday.
