Think miniature golf courses are only at the beach or the far out suburbs? There actually are some places to play within a short drive from the city. This summer, you can play mini-golf in the center of Downtown Washington DC. The National Building Museum
brings back its popular indoor Mini Golf exhibition. The expanded attraction features two 9-hole course options, with all new holes designed and built by leading Washington-area architects, landscape architects, designers, and contractors. The courses reflect this year's theme of "Building the Future," with twists and turns sure to challenge golfers young and old. Designed for ages 4 and up, the one-of-a-kind courses are located in air-conditioned comfort during Museum hours from Memorial Day (May 27, 2013) to Labor Day (September 2, 2013). The Museum will also offer six "Mini Golf Late Night" evenings throughout the summer during which Mini Golf will remain open until 9 pm: June 6, June 27, July 11, July 24, August 8, and August 22.
The National Building Museum has also partnered with Hill Country Barbecue Market
to present a unique branded outdoor experience featuring Hill Country's award-winning Texas-style barbecue, ice-cold Shiner beers, and signature cocktails on the Museum's West Lawn. Throughout the summer, the space features live American roots music on Friday and Saturday nights, presented by Hill Country Live, Hill Country's Austin-inspired music program.
