We actually stopped as outside there is the DAR sign.
It fit Dan, who is always right, so had to take a picture.
Had rooms from different states and different times in history, a library, and more.
We should have taken the tour to truly understand it.

We visited here during the Shutdown because many of the other DC museums were closed. We were so glad that we did.

We had a very interesting tour of the exhibition creating the Ideal Home - the curator was extremely enthusiastic, and had lots of stories to tell. The tour was supposed to be about an hour, but took much longer! It was very interesting to see how household appliances had developed differently in the US from Europe.

We also went into the wonderful library which we were told had been a theatre. And then we toured the Period Rooms - small rooms which depicted each State at a different period of history. Very interesting as were the area of children's toys and the various dolls houses.

An unexpected delight.

Each year the DAR opens their museum and buildings to the public for Christmas Open House. They serve cookies, warm cider and hot chocolate and offer Santa for the little ones. It is a very nice free event in December.

Visited the library here to find information on ancestors of mine who fought in the Revolutionary War. A beautiful sampling of rooms representing each state on view. Also a magnificent library. I was overwhelmed with information of that time of our countries history.

I went to DAR during the John Legend Tour in October 2013. The venue is quite spacious and also in the quite area of DC, just few meters from the White House. The only problem though is that it is a bit secluded from Metro stations, so some walking might have to be done to get there.
