Open the Doors

House & Home at the National Building Museum in D.C.

America’s households have never had their doors open wider than at House & Home, an exhibition opening April 29 at the National Building Museum in Washington D.C. The show aims to narrate the history of the American home, and promises a direct and engaging layout spanning seven galleries. One room will be piled high with household goods, another lined with touchable building materials, and yet another will display scale models of iconic homes. Some elements shall be arranged chronologically, demonstrating to viewers the many changes, and occasional continuities, seen in our homes over time. The show runs through May 1, 2017.
