Hive, National Building Museum’s Latest Installation


Boasting wound paper tubes as far as the eye can see, Hive, the latest installation at the National Building Museum, is available to experience from July 4-September 4, 2017! View more than 2,700 paper tubes of various sizes, all connected to create domed chambers, including a 60-foot-tall dome with a circular opening more than 10 feet wide! Each of the three domes offers visitors a truly unique experience with sound, light, scale, and even human interaction.
