National Building Museum



Located just four blocks from the National Mall, the Museum occupies a magnificent building with a soaring Great Hall, colossal 75 ft. Corinthian columns, and a 1,200 ft. terra cotta frieze.

Since 1885, the Museum has been the stage for Washington's most elegant events, including inaugural balls. The Museum has five magnificent, historic spaces available for your seated dinner, reception, concert, or meeting, with capacity for up to 2,000 guests.
