Former Residence of the Ambassadors of Spain | Washington, DC
The Former Residence of the Ambassadors of Spain is now preparing for the return of live events and opens its (out)doors to celebrate it! We invite you to visit our latest open-air arts installations including the Around Nature botanical garden created by artists Juanli Carrion with species that are reminiscent of each of the stops on the trip.
The outdoor exhibition area will be open every weekend in June starting on Friday, June 11 (see more information about visiting hours), and guided visits of the Around Nature garden will be offered every day at the end of the visiting hours.
The entrance to the outdoor exhibition area during visiting hours will be free and no reservation will be required, but visitors wanting to take part in guided tours need to reserve their spot.
