Celebrate with your favorite father at the place where the Father of our Country ate, drank, and influenced history. Gadsby’s Tavern Museum is pleased to offer free tours on Father’s Day for all visiting fathers! Cost $5 for all other adults and $3 for children (ages 11-17). Gadsby's Tavern Museum consists of two buildings, the 1785 Georgian tavern and the 1792 City Tavern & Hotel. Visitors can tour the historic rooms restored to their 18th-century appearance. Archeological excavation, paint analysis and research of surviving documents have produced an accurate picture of the furnishing and use of the buildings. The tavern was a center of politcal, business and social life in early Alexandria. Birthnight celebrations honoring George Washington were held in the second floor ballroom.



Admission Fee: Free on Father's Day for dads
