The Daughters of the American Revolution Museum is one of Washington's premiere American decorative arts museum - and it's free! The DAR Museum at 1776 D Street is just two blocks from the White House, facing the Ellipse. The collection includes more than 30,000 examples of decorative and fine arts, including objects made or used in America prior to the Industrial Revolution. Furniture, silver, paintings, ceramics, and textiles are exhibited in 31 period rooms and two galleries.

The period rooms represent a wide range of dates, locations, and functions. A 17th-century one-room New England house, parlors and bed chambers from the 18th and 19th centuries, a tavern, and a 1930s home of a wealthy antiques collector and much more are all here for you to visit.

The main gallery includes a changing exhibit space as well as racks for the display of some of the museum's collection of historic quilts. Where else can you see fabulous quilts and other objects from early America?
