Docents offer regular weekly and monthly tours except in the month of August.

Please note: The Dumbarton Oaks Museum will be closed to the public from May 23, 2016, until mid-February 2017. We regret that we cannot accommodate scheduled tours of the museum and Main House during this period. However, the gardens will be open and both introductory group tours in the afternoon and booked private tours will be offered during this time, except for the month of August.

We are excited about the reopening of the museum galleries with state-of-the-art lighting and upgraded exhibits. Please check this space for further announcements closer to that time.
