Dupont Underground, the subterranean trolley station underneath Dupont Circle, will once again open its doors to the public, starting January 6.

Borderstan reported that the 75,000-square-foot underground space will open on “most” Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays with access from a stairwell near 11 Dupont Circle NW. Each 45-minute tour will be limited to 30 people at a time with ticket prices at $15.

The last time Dupont Underground was open was for an art exhibition, called “Raise/Raze.” This Minecraft-like exhibition allowed the public to rearrange 18,000 3x3x3 cubes composed of translucent plastic balls attached by velcro.

Plans for Dupont Underground include creating an underground winery, gallery, restaurant, and the nation’s first underground micro-hotel. Since December 2014, Dupont Underground has been under a 66-month lease by nonprofit Arts Coalition for the Dupont Underground.
