Humor & Whimsy Tour

Thursday, August 4, 2022 | 2:00pm

Come and explore humor and whimsy at the Washington National Cathedral. Amid the majesty and grandeur of gothic architecture are examples of amusing architectural details, puns, lighthearted carvings and stained glass cartoons. Together we will discover a doctor in an old time buggy racing after a stork, a story in stone about a Nantucket sleigh ride, a wrought iron gate that unexpectedly wiggles, a dentist drilling a cavity in the tusk of his walrus patient and so much more!

Please note that this tour spends time outside and inside.

In-depth Tours tours offer a special, in-depth look at aspects of Cathedral artisanship for visitors aged 10 and older.

Reservations are suggested as attendance is limited.
