Living in DC, we often forget the amazing resources offered by the city's international community. Over 175 countries have embassies here. This Saturday, May 2nd is your chance to tour 30 of them for free! Open Embassies include Japan, the Bahamas, Ghana, Colombia, Korea, Australia, and Ukraine. Many of the Embassies are in converted mansions and the interiors showcase furniture, artwork, and design from their home countries. More info below the jump...
The open Embassies are mostly in the Dupont Circle and Van Ness neighborhoods. Cultural Tourism DC has online maps showing the open Embassies you can visit this Saturday: click here for Dupont and here for Van Ness.
