There’s some big family fun happening at the National Building Museum this month! On October 12, 2019, children and their families are invited to the museum for their annual Big Build event!

Kids and kids at heart will have the chance to experience what it’s like to be a builder! Children will have the opportunity to spackle walls, chop and hammer wood, and more as they spend time with architects, artisans, craftspeople, and other experts to get the inside scoop on their professions and hobbies!

Plus, there will be opportunities to experience cutting-edge virtual and augmented reality in the Tech Lab and explore construction vehicles in the “petting zoo.”

This event, open to all ages, is free to attend!

Unfamiliar with this museum? The National Building Museum, a National Historic Landmark, is dedicated to the history and impact of architecture, engineering, landscape architecture, and design. The museum itself is a large-scale example of Renaissance Revival architecture and boasts a soaring Great Hall, colossal 75-foot-tall Corinthian columns, and a 1,200-foot-long terra-cotta frieze. There are many exhibits for guests to enjoy and a dynamic schedule of activities and special events.

A permanent exhibit in the National Building Museum, Play Work Build is a play-driven experience that kids will love! In each gallery of this popular exhibit, imagination and hands-on play are encouraged! Growing children’s interest in architecture, engineering, and design, kids will enjoy a giant table brimming with hand-sized building blocks, a dedicated area packed with supersized foam building blocks, and even a virtual block-play experience!
