Taking your kids to a museum is a great way to teach them about history, much like picking them up from school each day dressed as a different signer of the US Constitution. Put away the Charles Cotesworth Pinckney costume with this Groupon.

National Building Museum
It’s only fitting that a museum devoted to architecture is itself housed in a formidable structure. The National Building Museum's 19th-century edifice greets visitors with somber Union soldiers sculpted into the exterior’s 1,200-foot frieze. Corinthian columns 75 feet high and built with 70,000 bricks lead into the cavernous Great Hall, which soars up to 159 feet in height and captures the echo of groups as they follow the color-coded banners towards exhibits devoted to American and international architecture, engineering, and design. Drawing on hands-on children’s toys, drawings, photographs, and models, the exhibits delve into everything from the history of the American home to the evolution of building blocks and other architectural toys.

“This is a GREAT museum - good for young and older kids, as well as adults. If you have older kids, this is a wonderful "upgrade" to most children's museums. I took 10 year olds this week, and they really enjoyed it, especially the Beach, and the Designing for Disaster exhibit. And I loved looking at the exhibits, especially the elaborate models of buildings.”
“The Metro exits directly in front of the building ...........very handy.”
