The National Building Museum
At 10:30 and 11:30 am on the first Tuesday of each month. Each month the Museum will introduce a new book during a read-aloud in the Building Zone’s Book Nook. The books explore themes such as patterns, city planning, construction, and celebration of other cultures. Families will then be invited to participate in corresponding hands-on play activities in the Building Zone. The Book of the Month program is free with admission to the Building Zone and recommended for ages 3 to 5.
