21. National Building Museum

The Washington, D.C. area has no shortage of interesting museums.  In addition to the permanent displays, many museums also offer rotating temporary exhibits.  While many of us will not be visiting our capital over the course of the next year, others surely will.

The National Building Museum (http://www.nbm.org/), 401 F Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20001 (202-272-2448) is concerned with architecture, engineering and design topics.  Their rotating exhibit Designing for Disaster runs through August 2, 2015.  Two questions this exhibit asks are:

While admission to the National Building Museum is free, there are modest fees associated with visiting the Designing for Disaster exhibit.  See the website for further information.
