National Building Museum

We started the day with a class - City by Design (it was homeschool day at the NBM). As city planners, the kids each constructed a different type of building and discussed where to best place it.

Will decided this city needed a soccer stadium.

After class we headed up to the LEGO Architecture exhibit. Amazing.

The rest of our visit was spent in LEGO paradise.

The building is beautiful! Built in the 1880's to house the Pension Bureau and to provide a suitably grand space for Washington’s social and political functions (the Great Hall).


  1. NBM is now on our list of places to go next time we're in DC! Thanks for sharing it!

  2. We LOVE the NBM. We bought a family pass and plan to visit often! Such easy access from the red line :)
