June 2: Kids in the Castle

Heurich House Museum to open for Kids in the Castle 

On Saturday, June 2, 2018 from 11am-2pm, the Heurich House Museum will open its doors for free, kid-friendly, self-guided tours. Kids in the Castle gives families the chance to explore the ornate details of the Heurich family home. Children and parents are invited to wander through the house at their own pace and complete a photo scavenger hunt to win prizes. Once visitors have finished their tour, they can relax and play games in the museum’s Castle Garden.

Since opening its doors, the Heurich House Museum has restricted access for children. This year, the museum has loosened this policy, giving kids the chance to experience the Heurich House Museum in a way they have not been able to before. June’s Kids in the Castle marks the second time in 2018 that the museum will host a day of exploration specifically for children. This German influenced family home provides visitors a glimpse of the past, and exposes children to a different time in DC’s history. Children can let their imaginations wander as they take in three floors of this ornate mansion, while also learning about history in a fun and engaging environment.

Guests may arrive at the museum anytime between 11am and 2pm. Touring through the house will take between 30 minutes and 1 hour.
