View Registrations Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend

The Smithsonian Institution, our "Nation's Attic," has shaped the fabric of the National Mall since 1855. Our most beloved museums, between the Capitol Building and the Washington Monument, trace the arc of American architecture. From Romanesque to Victorian, neoclassical to modernist, each unique building is an architectural study all its own. We'll discuss the style, design, controversy, construction, and fascinating backstory behind each of these National landmarks.

When: Monday, June 15, 2020
1:00 - 2:00 pm
Where: The Comfort of Your Home
United States
Contact: Chris Bauer & Pat Abler (Education Committee)
