Washington DC Monuments by Moonlight Tour by Trolley

1,613 reviews
Washington DC looks spectacular when lit up at night, so make the most of your time in the city by going on an evening tour on an open-air trolley. Going on an organized tour saves time working out local public transport, and means you can learn along the way through guide commentary. Tick off lots of top landmarks such as the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, the Washington Memorial, and more.

the museum is centered with a very extensive library. Around the building states have re-created rooms from the past reflective of american life in different parts of the country and reflecting different socio-economic households. The attention to detail and the extent to which these ladies have pursued authenticity is remarkable. It is a great way to see how the past was lived.

I'd made a note of this spot so I could visit on my next trip. So glad I did! There's a small museum of interesting period items, plus rooms furnished period style from states where members come from. Everything from the President Monroe French chairs scandal to a replica of a room where Paul Revere came to warn minutemen of the British invasion, a chandelier reportedly stood under by the Marquise du Lafayette, to a multiculturally inspired room from my home state of California. The research library is available to visitors and is in the Library of Congress style...beautiful! I spent two hours here, quite happily exploring. If you love history, stop by!

The Daughters of the American Revolution maintain a small museum located just across from the White House but, at Christmas, they celebrate an Open House in their historic national home. Each State delegation has a dedicated room there complete with appointments from a period in state history the chapter has selected. For Open House, there are a number of festively-dressed docents available at the rooms describing the contents which have been dressed up for the holiday and set up with traditional holiday music. The rooms and furnishings are really beautifully done but learning the history behind some of the celebrations and music is an added treat as are the antique toys. Cider and cookies are served in the main hall and the stunning genealogical library is also available for viewing. Although the weather outside was frightful, the atmosphere inside was warm and welcoming and we enjoyed the visit immensely. There is currently a display of quilts and their meanings in the museum and, if you into genealogy, a return visit to the library is a great idea, too.

We went for piece of her mind, and stayed to see the museum. Loved that it was quiet, no crowds and well curated. A pleasure to see.

Been at this museum numerous times. The museum area was recently redesigned, Displays are attractive and easily visible from all sides as well as for those in wheelchairs. There is handicap access to the building. I enjoy the items as they are not seen in other DC museums and they are from the DAR's large holdings. All display items relate to the history of the United States.
