About the Heurich House Museum:

The Heurich House Museum’s mission is to explore the American Dream through the legacy of German immigrant Christian Heurich and his Washington, DC brewery, and to create a just path to success for local small-scale manufacturers. 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.

The private non-profit Heurich House Museum preserves the historic Heurich House mansion as a museum and community center. The mansion, which was built from 1892-94, was the home of German immigrant, local brewer, and philanthropist Christian Heurich (1842-1945). Recognized as Washington, DC’s most successful brewer, he ran the Chr. Heurich Brewing Co. until his death at 102. The mansion is notable for its technological innovations, original interiors, and rich archival collection.

The museum educates the public about the life and times of Christian Heurich, the immigrant experience in America, the brewing industry of Washington, DC, late-Victorian architecture, and technological innovation in the built environment.

The Heurich House Museum seeks Event Volunteers to provide assistance during public programs (e.g., 1921 Garden Bar, Christkindlmarkt, etc.) and during private events (e.g., receptions, weddings, etc.). While the Heurich House Museum remains closed to the general public due to COVID-19, the Castle Garden is open.

Event Volunteer Job Description

  • Assist the museum staff with the security of guests and the museum spaces (Make sure that guests adhere to the rules)
  • Help with general logistics of events (e.g., event set up, event break down, etc.)
  • Ensure that all visitors feel welcome and have an enjoyable experience

All volunteers must complete volunteer training and sign up for Sling, a web-based scheduling program, to apply for volunteer shifts.

  • 50% discount on one ticket per public event hosted by the Heurich House Museum
  • 15% discount on items sold at the Heurich House Museum Gift Shop
