Frederick Douglass History Tour in D.C.

This four-hour history tour takes you through the life of Frederick Douglass in Washington, D.C. Starting at the Navy Memorial, 7th and Pennsylvania Ave NW, your day includes a 30-minute walking tour of the Frederick Douglass home, followed by an African American heritage tour of D.C. narrated by an experienced guide.

On the tour, you stop by places that were meaningful in the life of Frederick Douglass. We stop by Emancipation Park, where Mr. Douglass gave a dedication speech for a statue honoring President Lincoln. We also drive past Metropolitan AME Church, where Douglass worshiped, and stop at the MLK Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, and the African American Civil War Memorial.

The final stop is the Museum of African American History and Culture. We provide admission tickets into the museum, and you have at least four hours to explore on your own.

Please note: The tour of the house involves walking up some stairs.
