More than 100 works of art, artifacts, documents, and photographs reflect the breadth of American experiences. A fragment of the original Star-Spangled Banner serves as a starting point to investigate the broad history and representation of the United States flag as an icon of our nation and its people.
American artist James McNeill Whistler (1834–1903) arrived in London in 1859 and discovered in its neighborhoods and inhabitants an inexhaustable source of aesthetic inspiration. His images of the city created over the next two decades represent one of his most successful and profound assaults on the contemporary art establishment

St. Elmo's Coffee Pub
If you're looking for a fun, but inexpsensive night out check out some live music at St. Elmo's Coffee Pub. We feature local and national (and sometimes even international!) musicians Wednesday through Saturday, every week. For the past 16 years the Not So Modern Jazz Quartet + has been playing every Thursday at St. Elmo's. These seasoned regulars play Dixieland/New Orleans-style jazz and kick off their set around 7:30 p.m. All other days (Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday) music begins at 8 p.m. and goes to about 10 p.m. With a range in musical styles, there's surely something on our calendar for anyone who enjoys music. Besides jazz, we also feature folk, rock, blues, pop, experimental, country, bluegrass, and more! As always, the live music we offer is free (but tips are encouraged for the artists). "Come on out to St. Elmo's and enjoy a relaxing evening with coffee, great food, music, and friends. A night out at St. Elmo's gives you the opportunity to support local business and local/national musicians, and it is a less expensive alternative to a night at the bar." - Charity Meals from the Arlington Coffee Shop Examiner.

Amphitheater of the Ronald Reagan Building
The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them.
The group was born in December, 1981 when some staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. Their first idea was to stage a nativity play, but in the whole Congress they couldn't find three wise men or a virgin. So, they decided to dig into the headlines of the day, and they created song parodies & skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor
We perform every week in Washington, D.C. at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in the Amphitheater with shows every Friday and Saturday year round at 7:30 PM!
