Happy Fourth of July
We wish you all a very happy Fourth of July holiday in the company of family and friends! As we celebrate the nation’s birthday, it’s a a good time to remember the many immigrants who helped build the country. Why not visit the GAHM this weekend and explore the contributions of German-Americans through the centuries?
Please note that while our museum will be closed this Thursday and Friday in honor of the July 4 holiday, we will reopen on Saturday, July 6 from 11 am to 3 pm
as part of a special welcome for the 2019 Gaufest
participants and visitors to Washington, D.C. and to celebrate the Fourth of July weekend! This will also be the last weekend of our Culinary Customs: A Taste of Germany
exhibit, and we invite you to stop by for a visit along with a cup of beer, a delicious grilled German bratwurst, and a handcrafted Bavarian pretzel. A special thank you goes to our beer sponsor Gordon Biersch
, who are providing a keg of beer brewed to German standards.
Food, drink, & museum entry (limited to 1 drink, 1 sausage, & 1 pretzel per person):
GAHM members & Gaufest participants / $15
Non-members / $18
Families (2 adults and 2 children, ages 18 and under) / $40
RSVPs are highly encouraged and appreciated even if you plan to purchase a ticket at the door, as we need to have an estimate of the number of visitors in order to provide enough food. Tickets are also available online
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
