Back in June we learned that the National Building Museum was going to offer mini golf over the summer. I had the chance to check it out yesterday, and it is indeed awesome. A great option to add to your list of “what do I do when it is 106 degrees outside.”
WHERE: 401 F Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20001; Metro: Red line to Judiciary Square and Yellow/Green lines to Gallery Place-Chinatown.
WHEN: July 4 through Labor Day during Museum hours. The Museum will have two late nights until 9 pm: Thursday, July 26 and Thursday, August 23.
WHO: The course is designed for ages 4 and up.
WHAT: A playable indoor, air-conditioned mini-golf course with 12 one-of-a-kind holes created by some of the region’s top architects, construction firms, urban planners, and designers.
COST: $5 per round per person. With purchase of full-price Museum exhibition admission ticket, the price per round is reduced to $3. Museum members play for $3. Those who want to see the course without playing can do so as long as they have exhibition admission tickets.
The holes were designed by “some of the region’s most creative architects, construction firms, urban planners, and designers.”
