The Congressional Club Museum and Foundation

Founded in 1908, The Congressional Club was established to provide a non-partisan setting for friendships among the spouses of members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives in Washington, D.C.

While the basis of the organization remains the same, the Congressional Club Museum and Foundation has broadened its scope and activities to include serving its community and the Nation with not-for-profit partners. Together with its partners, The Club supports causes across the country, promotes volunteerism and facilitates bi-partisan collaboration. It also supports educational enrichment by preserving, collecting and exhibiting historical memorabilia of Congress and the Congressional Club.

The Congressional Club Museum and Foundation publishes a beautiful cookbook containing recipes of the spouses of members, Supreme Court justices, Cabinet secretaries and ambassadors.


Fostering Friendship Through Service

The Congressional Club Museum and Foundation membership comprises spouses of sitting and former members of Congress, as well as spouses of U.S. Supreme Court justices and the President’s Cabinet. Associate members include adult children of officeholders and officials.
