National Building Museum

Member Morning

Sunday, August 14, 2022
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM


Explore the National Building Museum before it opens! Members can enjoy an hour at the Museum with exclusive access to this year's Summer Block Party, The Playhouse, and our two popular exhibitions, Notre-Dame de Paris: The Augmented Exhibition and PLAY WORK BUILD. Refreshments and treats from our new Café, SakuSaku Flakerie at the National Building Museum, will be provided. Registration is encouraged. Register below to receive a reminder email before the program.

Member Morning will include an exclusive Insider Tour of The Playhouse. Throughout the morning, members can wander through the Midsummer Forest — a giant pop-up book based on Joanna Robson’s A Knavish Lad, a double-concertina artists’ book from the Folger collection that visually narrates every scene from A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Members can also discover the characters from the play through an interactive Scavenger Hunt and create their own fairy wand, lion mask, or paper moon at craft stations around the Midsummer Forest. Registration is encouraged but not required.
