Visiting the Octagon Museum
No special appointments or tour times necessary. Explore the house at your own pace: discover the lives of various people who lived in the house in the 1810s, and make yourself comfortable (yes—you can use the furniture!).
Private guided tours are available by appointment for groups of 5 or more. Tours last approximately 45 minutes, and are $10/adults and $5/students (discounts available for groups of 10+). We ask that you provide at least 24 hours notice when scheduling a tour. Guided tours are only available outside of regular open hours.
The Octagon is located at 1799 New York Avenue NW, Washington, DC, at the corner of 18th Street and New York Avenue NW.
Metro: The closest metro stations are Farragut West (Blue, Orange, and Silver lines) and Farragut North (Red line). The Octagon is a 10-15 minute walk south of both stations.
Parking: Metered street parking is available surrounding the Octagon. Parking garages are also available, although many are closed on the weekends. The Octagon does not have any dedicated site parking due to our location in downtown Washington, DC.
