An Invitation

Through the interpretation of its historic site and collections, Dumbarton House promotes the understanding of historic preservation and of the early history of our nation, so that the lives and ideals of early Americans inspire present and future generations.

Dumbarton House is supported by The NSCDA, grants, tour admissions, Gift Shop sales, and events rentals. As one of just a few museums in our Nation’s Capital focused on its important Federal era, we invite you to help sustain Dumbarton House in its mission by joining as a Museum Member or giving a gift Membership to family and friends.

Museum Members enjoy a range of benefits in concert with our regular programs including discounts to special tours, lectures, tastings, and free concerts.
