This building located just south of the new convention center is architecturally freaking awesome. I seem to recall that there was supposed to be a DC museum or something like that but it didn’t end up working out. Of course there is a banner that says welcome to the Historical Society of Washington, DC, so I’m pretty confused. Does anyone know what I’m talking about? Weren’t there some money problems and it closed after 6 months or so? Anyway, I was overjoyed to see these gigantic banners advertising two new exhibits going on inside.  Specific exhibits after the jump.

There will be one on black baseball in DC.

And the other exhibit seems super interesting and potentially quite provocative.

I’m super intrigued by “Riots are the language of the unheard”.

If those exhibits don’t seem interesting it’s definitely worth checking out the building itself which sits in marked contrast to the new convention center and is dotted with amazing details.
