Play Mini-Golf Inside A DC Museum This Summer

Are you visiting Washington, D.C., this summer and looking for fun family activities? The National Building Museum (NBM), D.C.’s museum dedicated to architecture, engineering and design, will offer a 12-hole mini-golf course under its 159-foot-high vaulted ceiling.

From July 4 through Labor Day (September 3), visitors can play Museum Golf among holes with building-related themes. NBM enlisted the help of area design and architecture firms to construct holes inspired by actual buildings, bridges, landscapes, or monuments, including the White House and Eiffel Tower, as well as more fantastical ones, the likes of which will remain a secret until the NBM’s course opens in July.

A round of mini-golf will cost $3 with museum admission or membership, or $5 without admission. While you’re there, make sure you check out NBM’s LEGO exhibit, which also closes at summer’s end.
