  • President Lincoln's Cottage
    Many of the rooms in President Lincoln's Cottage resound with the voices of Lincoln and his houseguests, in the form of actor-interpreted recordings broadcast through audio speakers. Though not all rooms are accessible to the public, daily tours through this Gothic Revival home use interactive multimedia to tell the stories of Abraham Lincoln's ideas, struggles in passing emancipation, and family during the three summers they spent here during the Civil War. Knowledgeable guides divulge facts about the president's meditations and meetings, often tailoring tours to their areas of personal expertise, such as war or politics. They showcase video screens populated by images about Lincoln's life, and a replica of the president's desk scrawled with the words "Log Cabins 4eva." Guides also invite visitors to engage in conversation throughout the tour while welcoming them to sit on furniture. The adjacent Robert H. Smith Visitor Education Center, built in 1905 and restored as a LEED-certified building, houses a range of both permanent and temporary exhibits. Visitors engage with interactive displays, photos, and manuscripts revealing the presidential Cabinet's feelings on emancipation, life in Washington DC during the Civil War, and the president's role as commander in chief. The cottage also hosts a lecture series with guests that have included historians, Lincoln experts, and an artist who sculpted a life-size statue of the president and his horse, which today stands watch over the cottage.

  • Guides of DC
    Tammy Belden, the owner and operator of Guides of DC, has lived in DC for more than 40 years, and spent a good amount of that time working on Capitol Hill. She was also the president of the Guild of Professional Tour Guides in Washington, which means she combines her deep knowledge of the area with an aptitude for turning tours into experiences as informative as they are lively and fun. Tammy and her colleagues have curated creative jaunts through DC that spotlight the iconic sites and the stories that surround them. One example is the Monuments by Moonlight tour. This four-hour tour offers a privileged view of sites like the White House, the Lincoln Memorial, and the U.S. Capitol as seen at night, alit by the moon and spotlights and framed by the evening sky and cityscape. Also of interest is the African American-themed tour, which centers around sites like the Martin Luther King Memorial, African American Civil War Museum, and Frederick Douglass House, as well as eight-hour tours that weave through all the necessary stops?the Smithsonian and Supreme Court, to name a few.
