“America's premier cultural institution”

The National Building Museum is a museum of "architecture, design, engineering, construction, and urban planning". It was created by an act of Congress in 1980, and is a private non-profit institution; it is adjacent to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and the Judiciary Square Metro station. The museum hosts various temporary exhibits in galleries around the spacious Great Hall. Past exhibitions have highlighted innovation in parking garages; green building and sustainable design; architects, including Eero Saarinen and Marcel Breuer; and tools as art. Exhibitions have included Designing Tomorrow: America's World Fairs of the 1930s; LEGO® Architecture: Towering Ambition, which includes 15 iconic buildings including the Empire State Building and Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater made entirely of LEGO bricks; and Walls Speak: The Narrative Art of Hildreth Meière, a retrospective on American Art Deco artist Hildreth Meiere.
