The National Building Museum presents a one-of-a-kind destination for visitors, an interactive architectural installation that brings the quintessential summer experience of going to the beach to downtown Washington, D.C. Spanning across the Museum’s Great Hall, the BEACH, created in partnership with Snarkitecture, will cover 10,000 square feet and include an “ocean” of nearly one million recyclable translucent plastic balls. You can spend a day at the BEACH without getting sand in your shoes and getting wet. The exhibit even includes a snack bar like most beach shacks.
Admission is $16 for adults and $13 for children, and includes access to the rest of the museum. BEACH tickets are available in-person at the Museum admission desk on a first-come, first-served basis. The BEACH will be open through Labor Day, September 7, 2015.
