Designed after Italian Renaissance palaces, the brick and terracotta building is palatial and contains a massive 15-story interior with eight Corinthian columns that are 75 feet (23 meters) high. National Building Museum's space has been the site of inaugural balls and a popular Christmas television special. Several tiers of arcades ring the Great Hall, offering space for a variety of architectural exhibits. Foremost among these is a look into the planning and design of Washington, DC. Children will love the touchable model of the nation's capital.
