    A National Historic Landmark owned by the Northern Virginia Urban League, Freedom House Museum is located in the basement-level of one of the most infamous slave trading companies in the country, and bears a connection to the story depicted in the Oscar winning film 12 Years a Slave. The museum is small but powerful with original artifacts and first-person narratives told through video and exhibits.

    The museum is open Saturday and Sunday from 1-5 p.m.

    Group Tours: Tours for seven or more should contact (703) 746-4739 at least one week in advance to arrange a time to visit. Groups are typically scheduled to visit before or after public hours.
