Mondays at 12 PM in the fall and spring semesters

D.C. Mondays 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 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. Free; no reservations required.
