Gadsby's Tavern Museum Mission Statement

Gadsby’s Tavern Museum consists of two buildings, a (circa) 1785 tavern and the 1792 City Hotel and Tavern.  In recognition of our role as a historic resource for both residents of Alexandria and visitors, the mission of the museum is to teach the public about the history of the site, and to preserve the two historic structures.  Supported by on-going research and professional standards, the Museum’s programs, collections, and exhibitions create a varied and meaningful learning environment that addresses the needs and interests of our community’s residents and visitors.  Like the 18th-century purpose of the site, our goal is to play a dynamic role in the social, economic, and educational life of Alexandria, thus contributing to the City’s identity and vitality.
