Heurich Happenings

This summer, join the Heurich House Museum and our community partners for a monthly story and craft time in the Castle Garden.

This year’s theme is “Immigrant Stories.” Together we’ll explore the history of people who have migrated to our country, while discussing what immigration looks like today in our own city. The hour will start with a read aloud of a book exploring our theme and will conclude with a craft activity!

On Saturday, June 3rd from 12-2pm, join the Heurich House Museum and founder of local small business Zenit Journals, Alina Liao, for a wellness journaling workshop in the museum’s Castle Garden. Learn how journaling can be a tool to improve your mental health, explore the concept of memory and how you want to be remembered, and explore Amelia’s journals up close in our new exhibit, Working Title
The Heurich House Museum will present its first new exhibit since 2018, which its education team developed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Working Title reframes the Heurich family home as a central juncture for the people who lived and worked there (1894-1956) - men and women, immigrant and natural-born, Black and white, rich and lower-income, examines how they interacted with each other every day, and questions why their histories have not always been given equal weight. 
On Thursday, April 27th from 5:00 - 7:30 pm, connect with students and professors from George Washington University Corcoran School of the Arts & Design together with the Heurich House Museum’s education and preservation teams with a hands-on pop-up program meant to challenge how we interpret and interact with design.
