Their collections, household goods, landscaped garden and 200 years of stories shed light on American arts, labor, politics, and technology. Enjoy guided tours of the William Thornton-designed mansion and self-guided tours of the 5½-acre garden, including the 1919 Pierce Arrow motor car and the District’s oldest exhibited smoke house. LAST HOUSE TOUR, 3 pm daily. Garden closes 4 pm. CLOSED January + all Mondays.
