If you want to learn about German-American heritage, Penn Quarter soon will be the place for you.

The German-American Heritage Museum will open March 21 at 719 Sixth St. NW on the edge of Chinatown.

The museum is under the umbrella of the German-American Heritage Foundation of the USA. The following exhibits will be available at opening: "German Immigration to the U.S.: 1600-Present," "German Music in the U.S.," "America & Germany: The Shaping of Images in Poetry and Prose," "German Families and Clubs" and "Germany Today."

Looks like this museum may appeal to researchers and educators as well as the casual DC tourist.

The hours will be 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 12 p.m. - 6 p.m. Saturday-Sunday. It will be closed Mondays.

Admission is free.
