The Heurich House Museum preserves local Washington, DC history and educates the public through Christian Heurich’s legacy and mansion. The mansion was built from 1892-4 by German immigrant, local brewer, and philanthropist Christian Heurich (1842-1945). Recognized as Washington, D.C.’s most successful brewer, he ran the Chr. Heurich Brewing Co. until his death at 102. The mansion is notable for its technological innovations, original interiors, and rich archival collection of one of the most important local families.
The interior of the house is a masterpiece of craftsmanship and design. The 31-rooms are replete with hand-carved wood, fireplaces with individually carved mantles and cast bronze fire backs, hand-painted ceiling canvases, luxurious furnishings, and original turn-of-the century Heurich family collections. A visit to the “Brewmaster’s Castle” is a visit back in time to the late-19th century, when the Heurich family lived in Washington’s premiere residential neighborhood, Dupont Circle.
The Heurich House Museum is available for commercial filming and photography, private photography sessions, concerts, meetings, corporate receptions, and wedding ceremonies. No private receptions, including wedding receptions, are permitted in the Museum. In order to protect and preserve the interior decorations of the museum, we have event guidelines for all events.
Primary event spaces are the secluded urban garden that can accommodate up to 125 guests and the bright indoor Conservatory that can accommodate 60 seated or 100 standing guests. All event rentals include museum access which allows your guests to explore the original Heurich family rooms.
