Weekend Watch: Planes in flight @ the Building Museum

Filed Under: Washington, DC

In both editions of my book I heap praises upon the National Building Museum as one of the best places in the District to take young children - especially during wintertime. It's a beautiful space... with loads of room for little ones to romp, and rarely a crowd. You can also grab a bite to eat while you're there, browse great exhibits, shop in the gift store, and it's right across the street from metro.

Calling all airplane-loving kids (and parents): This Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Building Museum hosts "Flying in the Great Hall." The DC Maxecuters club will fly their model airplanes in and across the great hall. FREE for all ages.

Older kids (ages eight+) are invited to come early, from 9 to 11 a.m., to make your own model airplane with a group of cub scouts as your guides. (Tix required for kids; accompanying adults are free). For more info, call 202.272.2448.
