You’re Invited to Celebrate the National Building Museum’s 40th Anniversary

On December 12, 1980, President Jimmy Carter signed an act of Congress that established a museum with a still-unique purpose: to inspire curiosity and knowledge about the world we design and build.

Since then, the National Building Museum has welcomed millions of visitors and earned a well-deserved international reputation as an essential cultural institution.

Our dedicated team creates exhibitions and programs for visitors of all ages that call attention to contemporary issues such as climate change, social justice, public health and housing. Our goal is ambitious but never more relevant: to educate, entertain and engage audiences about the built environment and to challenge them to advocate for a sustainable and equitable future.

The week of December 7-12, the Museum invites everyone to a pre-holiday feast of FREE virtual programs and events:

  • December 8, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. / Spotlight on Design: The Netherlands Carillon
    Learn about this iconic bell tower in Arlington, Virginia, that was a gift from The Netherlands to the U.S. after World War II. Spotlight on Design is generously supported by the Revada Foundation of the Logan Family. Additional funding for this program is provided by the Embassy of the Kingdom of The Netherlands.

To register for these events, head to go.nbm.org/calendar.
