National Building Musuem in Washington DC

The building museum was an average destination in terms of comparison to other places that we went this summer. It has a special room called the building zone which is geared towards children ages 2-6 years old and is $3.00 per child 2 and older. They also have programs that run on different days for a fee (check their calendar for list of activities. This place was a watered down version of Storyville in Baltimore but was good for children who like to build with blocks, or play with trains. This is also a good alternative if you live in DC and do not want to drive into Baltimore. There also might be a wait list when you get there because they only allow a certain number of children in at a time. However, they put blocks out in the lobby for children to play with while the parents waited in line.

  1. The building zone for kids now costs money, and children are only permitted to enter at certain times (I think every hour on the hour and are permitted to play for 40 minutes). There are a few blocks in the lobby to play with for free, but unless you're willing to pay, it's not worth taking kids here.
