Gadsby’s offers self tours and staffed tours depending on what you like. During the summer on Sundays they have Jr Docents who take you through the tavern. I have been through the tavern many times for different events.

This museum tells the story of this historic tavern over three floors of exhibits. See a recreation of the grand ballroom which played host to George Washington. Definitely worth a visit of you are in Old Town Alexandria.

My cousin and I toured Gadsby’s Tavern Museum on a Sunday afternoon. Since I couldn’t climb the stairs to see the upper floors, I rested in the small gift shop. While there, the kind Proprietor told me the history of the Tavern and showed me large photos of the upper rooms. I really appreciated that! My cousin enjoyed seeing the upper rooms and artifacts. Such fun to imagine George Washington and friends being there!

Two historic houses, one Georgian and the other Federal, are joined into a tavern, historic inn and ballroom. The original ballroom is installed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, replaced by an accurate replica in the Gadsby's Tavern Museum.
