May 27–September 2, 2013
This summer, the National Building Museum will bring back its popular indoor Mini Golf exhibition. The expanded attraction will feature two 9-hole course options, with all new holes designed and built by leading Washington-area architects, landscape architects, and contractors. The courses will explore the architects’ and designers’ ideas for “Visions of the Future,” with twists and turns sure to challenge golfers young and old. Visitors to the Museum will be able to play this one-of-a-kind course, designed for ages 4 and up, in air-conditioned comfort during Museum hours from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
Original Mini-Golf Holes Designed by Area Professionals
The Museum invited firms and individuals to sponsor, design, and construct a hole with the theme of “Building the Future.” Many participants have formed teams with other building industry professionals to make their hole as dynamic as possible. The Museum will present a Best in Show award, determined by a jury of design experts, and players will vote for the People’s Choice award.
