Getting There

U.S. Navy Memorial Burke Theater
701 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20004

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

The Burke Theater at the U.S. Navy Memorial is located in the Heritage Center. We suggest locating the door by standing on the Plaza facing north (your back to the Archives building, facing the hill with the Portrait Gallery in the distance) — the door is located at 1:00, to the right — look for the green awning and the DC Shorts sign boards.


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 green awning at the entrance. You must enter from the Plaza — there is no access from the 7th Street lobby. The theater is also served by the Circulator bus, and Metro’s 70s and 30s busses.


There is no garage parking available at this location. Limited metered street parking is available, and garages are located throughout the neighborhood.


There is a Capital Bikeshare rack a block away from the theater at 7th Street and Indiana Avenue.
