Tudor Place: Washington, DC Historic House & Garden
Welcome to Tudor Place Historic House & Garden, a National Historic Landmark. In 1966, Armistead Peter 3rd’s love of the trees, architecture and collections of Tudor Place inspired him to ensure their protection through the conveyance of an easement and the establishment of a foundation dedicated to the perpetual care of his family’s home. The family home and surrounding garden were opened to the public in October 1988.
Today, visitors are welcome to tour the family home as a historic house museum and the surrounding 5 ½ acres.
Tudor Place is open for guided house tours & self-guided garden visits. Guided tours of the historic house are offered on the hour. Advance registration is encouraged. Self-guided house tours are not available. All visitors must check in at the Visitor Center upon arrival. Entry after 3:30 p.m. will not be permitted. The grounds close at 4:00 p.m.
