Our Mission

The Heurich House Museum honestly explores the American Experience through the legacy of German immigrant Christian Heurich and his Washington, DC brewery, and creates an equitable path to success for local small-scale businesses.

Our dual mission of public history education and public service is directly related to our core philosophy: that house museums should be dynamic and relevant to our modern communities.
