Go into the Smithsonian and you'll see them: the zombified hordes, tethered to their audio guides, obediently shuffling from one exhibit to the next in slack-jawed silence. Now Dog & Pony DC reinvents the museum experience entirely, making it active and adventurous. Museum Play is their experimental approach to art appreciation, infused with games, projects and fascinating history. Through this exciting new venture, you'll become BFFs with the Smithsonian American Art Museum's stunning collection, interacting with fellow museum-goers and the artworks in dynamic and creative ways. A mix of digital, analog, goofy and thought-provoking, Museum Play is for anyone ready to impress co-workers at the water cooler or friends at the next cocktail party.
