Beautiful home and gardens. The tour was very interesting and brought insight to GW history. I could visualize the white house burning and the lengths the family went to keep history alive.

Our Docent Judy provided a wonderfully detailed explaination of the homes architectual features and the facinating history of the house. We could have taken her whole afternoon asking questions. The Home and Garden are a perfect mid point to tour while you're walking the streets of Georgetown enjoying the architecture. Both are notably quiet and abscent of hoardes of tourists.

Tudor Place is a late 18th century mansion in Georgetown Washington, D.C. It was at one time the home to Thomas Peter and his wife Martha Parke Custis a step-granddaughter of George Washington. We took a tour round the house which lasted about 70 minutes and saw some original period furniture and Washington artefacts but generally speaking it was just... More

The house tour is very interesting and the garden is a pretty town garden. The house is furnished with many of George Washington's belongings. A Pierce Arrow (1919 I believe) is in the garage.

What a great tour. A must for history buffs. Our tour guide - Leslie Ossim was great. Very knowledgable. Great collection and a beautiful garden. Not really good for kids

I finally visited Tudor Place over Inaugural Weekend 2013 after years of living in DC (including in Georgetown, so I have no excuse for not visiting sooner!) and passing by the outside of it a million times. A group of friends and I attended a special "Presidential Tea" ceremony there, which featured teas and snacks of types that would/could have... More

The home of Martha and George's granddaughter, and holds most of the Mount Vernon furniture that is not still at Mt Vernon. Set on 6 acres in Georgetown, just half a block from Dumbarton Oaks, the place is a gem, and well done for a house museum. As a preservation and architecture buff, and with a spouse who was the...

A private home until 1987 Tudor place provides a seldom seen view of George Washington’s private family. Located on 5 acres in the heart of George Town, it is a time capsule. For an intimate view of our first family, it is a must see. Our docent was terrific.

This hidden little piece of history is well worth the visit. It is well maintained and beautifully presented. It also contains the largest collection of Washington artifacts outside Mt. Vernon. All the guides were very nice and worked together to answer questions. And they seemed to know all the answers. There is also a connection to Robert E. Lee's family... More

This house belonged to Martha Washington's granddaughter and has been in the family until 1983. It has over 200 artifacts from George and Martha Washington which is probably more than you will see if you visit nearby Mount Vernon which has replicas of the original furniture and other accessories. The guides are very knowledgeable and eager to share not only... More
