DKMC Walk Weekend

June 3 @ 11:00 am-4:00 pm

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.

On Saturday, June 3rd at 12 noon, D.C. Councilmember for Ward 2, Jack Evans, will participate in the official ribbon-cutting event to mark the re-opening of the museum.

Dumbarton House is celebrating our grand reopening after completing a major construction project this past winter. Visitors are invited to tour the newly reinterpreted museum and explore an exciting new exhibit, The Exchange, featuring a rarely exhibited original printing of the Articles of Confederation (1777) and a 2nd edition of The Federalist [Papers] (1818). Visitors will look back at some of our nation’s early debates around establishing a democratic republic and then be asked to reflect on current democratic principles of America. Enjoy light refreshments throughout the weekend and participate in the democratic process by sending postcards to your elected officials in support of an issue they care about. Continue the celebration on Sunday, with the seasonal kick off of Sunday Serenity Yoga at 10am in the tranquil East Park.
