Admission and Tickets

Rear view of Dumbarton House

During the Federal Government closure, admission will be on a Pay-What-You-Want basis! 

Guided tours will not be available during this time, Sorry.  January is typically our cleaning and gallery changeover month, so expect to see staff working throughout the museum and a gallery or space may be closed temporarily, but this creates all the more interesting of an experience.  Feel free to ask the curatorial and collections teams about what they are doing and how they are involved day to day in the museum!

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.

Join a knowledgeable docent for a 45 minute tour through the historic house and enjoy self-guided exhibitions. For your convenience, book online or by phone for our Saturday and Sunday guided tours at 10:30am and 1:30pm. Reservations are recommended, but walk-ins are welcome as space permits.

Both guided and self-guided tours are available daily. Reservations are required for group tours and specialty tours; available for parties of 10 or more.
