DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS, THE NATIONAL BUILDING MUSEUM IS CLOSED, AND ALL PUBLIC PROGRAMMING HAS BEEN CANCELED THROUGH THE END OF MAY. WE LOOK FORWARD TO SHARING GOOD NEWS ABOUT OUR REOPENING AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Teens

Teen Programs at the Museum empower students to examine the people, processes, and materials that create buildings and places. Our programs enhance the built environment in the classroom, helping teens to develop skills in critical and creative thinking, problem solving, analysis, evaluation, and teamwork.

Note About Teen Program Offerings Through Fall 2020

To make time for strategic planning regarding the Museum’s teen offerings, we are unable to offer Investigating Where We Live summer 2020, Teen Council 2020–2021, and the Design Apprenticeship Program fall 2020. This spring’s session of the Design Apprenticeship Program—for returning participants only—will happen, and there is an amazing project in the works!

Thank you to our current participants, alumni, volunteers, families, and communities who have invested their time and shared their talents with these programs over the years. We are excited to develop the next iteration of our award-winning teen programs!
