DKMC Walk Weekend

Stretch your legs and your mind during the Annual Dupont Kalorama Museum Walk, June 4 and 5, 2022! 

We’re so excited to bring Walk Weekend back this June after a two-year hiatus with a NEW site added to our lineup! DKMC was founded in 1983 to pursue the mission of supporting our member institutions and creating neighborhood cultural experiences while drawing attention to the fabulous “off the Mall” destinations. During Walk Weekend, the first Saturday and Sunday in June, each of our institutions is open for FREE! These include Dumbarton House, Woodrow Wilson House, Phillips Collection, Anderson House, the National Museum of Jewish American Military History, and the Dupont Underground.  

Please note, if you wish to enter a museum while visiting the neighborhood, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with each museum’s visitor safety requirements and site-specific attractions.
