The DAR Museum tour was unforgettable. As a DAR member, I had wandered through the rooms on my own, during the Continental Congress. When I stayed in Washington DC for a few extra days, I stumbled upon a tour, just starting out with a guide. It was free and I decided to join the small group. It was amazing! I... More

My grandmother always wanted to belong to the DAR so it was a meaningful visit for me. I went originally for the costume exhibit which was very good but I also enjoyed the 31 historical rooms depicting different periods of US history. Costume were displayed in these rooms according to the era which made both more meaningful. Beautiful building.

As a textile, fashion and quilt aficionado, I was so pleasantly surprised the first time I visited. I have returned several times to see the current exhibit of historic quilts, vintage fashions, and of course the fabulous library. Many TV shows have been filmed here: it is a stand-in for the White House. Be sure to visit the period rooms... More

This seems to be a little known museum but it is a hidden gem for history buffs. The building seems to be mainly used for historic research and private gatherings. However almost every state has a room which has been set up to show a difference time period, as well as a different financial perspective of the time. I found... More

The DAR family history library should be on your to do list if you are interest in genealogy. Great resources, staff and facility.

We had the opportunity to visit the property for the Military District of Washington US Army "Pershing's Own" Band's Holiday Celebration. Exquisite location that is wonderfully maintained. A true piece of history awaited us. Access and seating for a disabled visitor was easy, quick and beyond helpful from the great staff.

We weren't sure what to expect here. The museum was semi out-of-the-way (over near the White House) and also under renovation. But we loved it! There were many rooms, based on different time periods, states, and styles. It was so cool. The library was also awesome. My daughter and I mulled over the possibility that we might be Daughters of... More

Daughters of the American Revolution have a great building in the middle of the city no one enters because they think you need to be a member. Not true! Better than the library of congress, which has its own merits, but this is in a great location, is gorgeous and has a friendly feel to it. You can peek into... More

This beautiful building has little rooms all throughout that are decorated in different styles of states/dates. It was very interesting and nice, I went twice. It has a beautiful library in the center of the building and a computer room if you want to work on your family tree.
