Octagon Museum

The eight-sided, 19th-century home of John Tayloe III, a wealthy contemporary of early US presidents, offers an interesting glimpse into both history and architecture. President Madison resided here after the White House was burned in the War of 1812. The Treaty of Ghent was signed in the Octagon's study at the war's end. Architectural exhibits are integrated into the fine house with its period furnishings. The building itself is a masterpiece, designed by William Thornton, the architect of the U.S. Capitol and other high points of Federal-era Washington.

National Building Museum

Popularly known as the Pension Building, the National Building Museum plays a pivotal role in narrating the history of design, engineering, construction, urban planning and architecture in the United States of America. A non-profit organization, the museum hosts a number of exhibitions, festivals and public programs that endorse the exchange of ideas and information across people of all sections of society, across the globe. Located in a monumental structure with a design based on Italian Renaissance palaces, the brick, and terracotta building is grand and contains a massive 15-story interior with eight Corinthian columns that are 75 feet (23 meters) high. The museum's space has also been the site of inaugural balls and a popular Christmas television special. An iconic tourist attraction, a visit to the capital city is certainly incomplete without a tour of the National Building Museum.

Dumbarton Oaks

Desde "La Visitación" de El Greco hasta obras de arte precolombinas y bizantinas, joyas y mosaicos, Dumbarton Oaks está repleto de tesoros elegantes. Construido en 1801, la propiedad alcanzó su máxima gloria en la década de 1920 cuando funcionó como centro de reuniones de la clase alta y perteneció a Robert Bliss y su esposa heredera Mildred. Los jardines ocupan unas 10 hectáreas en Georgetown e incluyen jardines escalonados, senderos serpenteantes y fuentes elaboradas.
