801 K Street, NW
The big day is tomorrow. All the details on Apple’s grand opening is here. I was lucky enough to take a tour yesterday and it is, indeed, absolutely dope. The renovation of the building is simply gorgeous. And to be honest, there is no way my photographs captured the beauty so just go and check it out yourself. Seriously.
But I would like to put in a reminder that The DC History Center is also there and really great.
“The DC History Center is a library and museum that includes the Kiplinger Research Library, three galleries, and a museum store. Located in the historic Carnegie Library, the DC History Center is where the public has free access to exhibits and programs about the diverse stories of Washington, D.C. The DC History Center is owned and operated by the Historical Society of Washington, D.C.
The DC History Center will be open Tuesday through Saturday 10:00 am – 7:00 pm and Sunday from 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm.
The Kiplinger Research Library will reopen this summer, with scheduled research appointments beginning in July.”
They welcoming from Apple was pretty great, complete with applause and all, though I was extra careful not drink any beverages that were offered.
The exhibits from The DC History Center are A+
Basement exhibit from The History Center and Apple is great too – this photo does no justice and like everything else you MUST visit in person. Just a tiny taste:
The outdoor areas were gussied up too:
Oh yeah there’s also a Shop Made in DC on the 2nd floor operating the museum store for The DC History Center!!
