Plan A Visit To One Of Alexandria’s Must See Historic Museum – The Gadsby’s Tavern Museum.

Gadsby’s Tavern Museum located at 134 N Royal Street Alexandria is one of the city’s must visit historic museum.  The museum which consists of the c. 1785 tavern and the 1792 City Hotel was operated by Mr John Gadsby from 1796 to 1808. The tavern was once an area used for dancing assemblies, theatrical and musical performances as well as meetings of local organizations. The Ballroom of the Tavern hosted George Washington’s Birth night Ball and Thomas Jefferson’s Inaugural Banquet. The museum currently offers special programs, tours and the hosting of private and special events.

On a visit to the museum I was treated to a guided tour which provided a more interactive tour of the Museum. Persons also have the choice of exploring the museum on self guided tours. At the Museum Shop I was able to purchase products such as private label wine, holiday ornaments and a variety of books which taught me more about taverns in America. Gadsby’s Tavern Museum offers a variety of educational programs such as School Programs, Adult Programs, Homeschool Programs, Camp and Daycare Programs, Scout Programs, Special Needs Program and Educational Outreach Kits. Each program offered by the Museum all incorporate interactive and hands-on activities for everyone to enjoy while learning about the historical significance of the Tavern and its importance to the City of Alexandria.
