National Building Museum: My Favorite Building in DC

The National Building Museum is my favorite building in Washington, DC. "The Museum was designed in the 1880s by Montgomery C. Meigs to house the Pension Bureau. The building's exterior dimensions are 400 feet by 200 feet, and 75 feet high to cornice level."

Highly recommended!


  1. David - I agree with you, quite a beauty. Is it a golden rectangle? I've always found that building very eye catching, but can't figure out quite why.

    Thanks for the nice work on your blog.

  2. The building museum has interesting exhibits and a great bookshop. It's one of my favorite museums in DC.

  3. I like the frieze (sp?) that runs around the building.

  4. It is a great building.
