D.C. Museum Explores Design with Miniature Golf

Miniature golf will draw those in Washington, D.C., to explore design while having fun at the National Building Museum.

Explore the world of design this summer armed with a putter and golf ball at the National Building Museum’s newest interactive exhibit.

The National Building Museum has partnered with Washington D.C., area architects, landscape architects and contractors to build an indoor miniature golf course.

“We just thought it would be fun,” Sarah Leavitt, curator for the museum said.

Each hole is a unique design inspired from iconic D.C. architecture, landscapes, bridges and monuments -- or entirely from the architect’s imagination. The museum invited leading architecture firms and individuals to participate in the exhibit, which will award Best in Show and a People’s Choice award to outstanding designs.

“We expect to draw families, couples and groups of friends to mini-golf and to dazzle them with an architecturally impressive course,” said Chase W. Rynd, the museum’s president and executive director. “And they’ll beat the heat.”

The 12-hole, one-of-a-kind golf course opened July 4 and will remain open until Labor Day. Visitors may play for $5 a game or $3 a game with a museum exhibition admission ticket.
