‘Fun House’ exhibit at National Building Museum open until Sept. 3


WASHINGTON (News4Utah) – If your summertime plans include a family vacation to the nation’s capital, there’s one stop you will want to add to your list of places to visit. 

Washington, DC’s newest family destination is not your typical museum. 

Zoe Rodenas is a 13-year-old from Chesapeake, Virginia. She says a lot of people think art is boring, but this is a new way to look at it.  

The Fun House is an interactive exhibit with ten years’ worth of work by New York Design Firm, Snarkitecture.  

Visitors can race marbles in one room, lounge on pillows in the backyard or jump in the pool. 

Emma Filar, the Director of Marketing and Communication at the National Building Museum says their mission is to inspire curiosity in the world that we design and build. 

The pool of plastic balls is not just for the little ones, it brings out the kid in everyone.  

Benjamin Mundt from Arlington, Virginia says he likes to play ping pong and jump in the ball pit at the exhibit.  

The exhibit is not only fun but educational.

Craig Begbie from Canada says he took his daughter because she wants to be an architect.  

The National Building Museum is open through Labor Day weekend.
