U.S Navy Memorial Heritage Center — Burke Theater

701 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC

In the heart of Penn Quarter, the U.S. Navy Memorial Heritage Center’s 240-seat theater inside the center offers pristine HD projection and unparalleled sound.

The U. S. Navy Memorial is located above the Archives/Penn Quarter Metro station. Exit the station, turn right and follow the curve of the sidewalk until you see the entrance. You must enter from the Plaza — there is no access from the 7th Street entrance.


While there is garage parking nearby, we recommend checking for the closing time — some lots shut down before the last show will end (11:30pm). Limited metered street parking is available.

There is a Capital Bikeshare rack a block away from the theater.
