Event description

Description

Join us for a very special lunchtime tour of the National Academy of Sciences building on the National Mall.

Designed by architect, Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue, and completed in 1924, this Greco Roman inspired building was made even more unique with its many Art Deco elements. A major renovation was begun by Quinn Evans Architects in 2010 and completed in 2012.

Highlights of the tour will include the original entry façade and the spectacular great hall inside, which includes murals by Albert Herter.

This elegant and striking building is rarely open to the public, so please be sure to join us. Register today!
