The old Civil War Pension Building is the perfect location for the National Building Museum. The outside wall has a detailed relief soldiers traveling to receieve their pensions. The inside is mostly a large open courtyard with a fountain in the center. Immensely tall columns stretch several stories to the ornate ceiling, where busts of historic figures can be seen along the triforium. This large area is perfect for fairs, conventions, and temporary displays the museum often hosts. The exhibits are located on the balconies surrounding the courtyard. Subjects range for architectural history to artwork made from hardware. The museum is free and often has programs for families, scout groups, and schools.

I didn't give this five stars because although the museum is unique, the subject matter is a little bland. This museum takes up an entire city block near Judiciary Square. Once inside you'll find open spaces with differing architectural presentations to dazzle the eye. Technically, the museum is free, but a small $5 donation is strongly encouraged. Because it's such a departure from the stuffy Smithsonians nearby on the mall, the place is becoming the favorite museum of my friends and me. Particularly of interest is the record-number of Roman columns supporting the building's infrasturcture. It's almost like a city within a city.

This isn't the most exciting museum ever but if you're in the neighborhood it's worth a look since the building is really cool. Also I think they do the national Chistmas concert from here, the one that's on TV every year. They do have a really big Christmas tree.

PROS: Great building
CONS: Exhibits not too exciting
