Do you love history? Decorative Arts? Architecture? Want to learn more about African-Americans in Alexandria in the 18th and 19th centuries? Carlyle House will start offering special guided tours to the public throughout the year. Guests will have a personalized, behind the scenes tour of the mansion with either the Curator, Director or Educator, depending on the topic.

These tours will be offered on selected weekend days. Our first “Curator’s Tour” of Carlyle House will be on Saturday, August 15th at 10am. Curator Helen Wirka will take visitors on a private tour of the museum focusing on selected objects in the collection and their history, use and how they tell the story of John Carlyle, his family and friends like George Washington. The tour will last about an hour and will take place rain or shine. Please do not bring large purses or backpacks. Tickets are $20 per person. Service fees apply if tickets are purchased online. There is a maximum capacity of 10 people per tour, and tickets may sell out.
