Admission and Tickets

Rear view of Dumbarton House. Joseph Nourse, first Register of the U.S. Treasury, resided at Dumbarton House with his family, servants, and slaves from 1804-1813. Drawing on our rich collection of Nourse objects and family archives, as well as public and private collections, we offer a fascinating insight into their daily lives.

Dumbarton House Museum is open!
