Mondays at 12 PM in the fall and spring semesters

D.C. Mondays at the Museum welcomes you for a series of weekly lunchtime meetups with fellow D.C. history buffs, historians, students, and faculty. Join us every Monday during the academic year for lectures, gallery talks, film screenings, or discussion on D.C. history, politics, art, architecture, or archaeology. Many topics are inspired by the museum’s Albert H. Small Washingtoniana Collection.

D.C. Mondays at the Museum takes place from 12–1 p.m. at the museum, located at 701 21st Street, NW. All sessions include a presentation with time for discussion and debate. Bring your lunch and enjoy a cup of coffee on us! Free; no reservations required.
