Celebrate the Fourth of July at the National Building Museum’s Summer Block Party Installation

Every year, there’s no shortage of events and attractions on the Fourth of July in DC. But if you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary for this year’s celebration, you might stop by the National Building Museum on F Street for the opening of their Summer Block Party Installation.

This year’s exhibition is the product of a collaboration between the museum and the LAB at Rockwell Group, and it features an immersive, interactive installation called “Lawn.” The installation transforms the museum’s Great Hall into an immense, sloping green space, complete with hammocks, lawn games, outdoor movie screenings, and plenty of other summertime activities. Climb to the top of the scaffolding tower to catch a one-of-a-kind view of the city skyline, or just stretch out on the grass with your nearest and dearest to enjoy the art-filled Fourth of July festivities. 

Tickets start at $10, and include admission to all the other museum exhibitions, or can be reserved for free on specific days for each DC neighborhood ward. See the website for details.
