Recently the Yellow Ribbon Fund treated the wounded warrior families to a day at the National Building Museum in DC. It was a day full of learning and a few little surprises were tossed in there too. We took the Metro's Red Line to Chinatown and enjoyed a lovely short walk to the Museum.The museum is on 401 F St NW and you could take the Judiciary Square stop, but it was a beautiful day for a walk and we wanted to discover food on our way over.
When you walk in the museum's Great Hall, you are immediately struck by the incredibly gorgeous architecture. I just stood there for a minute and took it all in. But the kids were too excited to let me just stand there, so we had to go off on our adventure. Of course we had to go see the Legos first. We were wowed by all the buildings made out of legos. In the Lego Room, as our kids referred to it, we found the Sears tower and several other important American landmarks. We spent our full hour allotted in the Lego room. The kids found plenty to do.
Once our Lego hour was up, we wondered through the other exhibits. Since we homeschool our girls, I enjoyed the extra day of learning without me having to put in the planning and effort. You have to love museums because they help you teach your children so much.
The mini-golf room was our final stop. The mini-golf was 11 holes of DC fun. Kids of all ages were enjoying trying to putt their ball through the various courses.
As you can see from these smiles, these littlest warriors had a blast. Learn more about the National Building Museum by visiting http://nbm.org today. Please note the National Building Museum is a member of the Blue Star Families network and admission is free until Labor day. The Lego Exhibit and Mini-Golf did have an additional charge, but were totally worth it!! You'll want to hurry over though, both the Lego Exhibit and Mini-Golf will be gone after Labor Day!
