Audio Tour of Our Historic Building


The National Building Museum now offers a self-guided audio tour of its historic home. The audio tracks are available on this page, by scanning "quick response" (QR) codes at each of the tour stops with your smartphone (follow the handout at the information desk and look for the red signs along the way), by downloading the podcast version in iTunes.

Start the tour at the Museum's information desk on the ground floor.
