I was like a kid in a candy store when I visited the Museum Shop at the National Building Museum; there were so many things to look at, to touch, and to buy!
The outside of the museum looks very sturdy and stately, just as a museum dedicated to buildings should be.
And there is an awesome-looking Maze currently on exhibit that you should absolutely check out! You can find out more about it here: http://bit.ly/1ubL6TE. One of our local news networks interviewed Bjarke Ingels, the designer of the maze, here: http://bit.ly/1tfOW2I
The Museum Shop, rated one of the best places to buy gifts in DC, is chock-full of books on architecture and design, building toys, games, models, and crafts, jewelry, accessories and housewares, and beautiful stationery. I'm so happy that Beverly Jones, Paper Traveler cards are part of the lovely assortment!
Be sure to check out the Maze, check out the museum's Summer Block Party events, and check out the store -- you'll have a ball!
