Entertainment:

National Theatre - Entertainment - 575 7th St. NW, Washington, DC, United States

National Building Museum

401 F St NW
Washington, DC, United States

"When most people think of a museum, they are likely to think of the things exhibited there—paintings, Moon rocks, totem poles, or other objects of artistic, scientific, or cultural value. Of course, the National Building Museum has always offered visitors the chance to see many interesting objects, from drawings by famous architects to a full-scale, sustainable house built in our own galleries. Indeed, the care, interpretation, and thoughtful display of such artifacts is central to our mission. The Museum is, however, much more than a repository of things, beautiful and intriguing though they may be. It is above all a forum for the development, exploration, and exchange of ideas. Created by an act of Congress in 1980, the National Building Museum has become one of the world’s most prominent and vital venues for informed, reasoned debate about the built environment and its impact on people’s lives. Our exhibitions, educational programs, and publications are well regarded not only for their capacity to enlighten and entertain, but also as vehicles for fostering lively discussion about a wide range of topics related to development, architecture, construction and engineering, interior design, landscape architecture, and urban planning."

BrewMaster's Castle

1307 New Hampshire Ave NW
Washington, DC 20036, US

"One of Washington's best-kept secrets, the "Brewmaster's Castle" is considered by many historians to be one of the most intact late-Victorian home in the country, and a Landmark on the National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1892-1894 of poured concrete and reinforced steel by German immigrant, local brewer and philanthropist, Christian Heurich (HI-rick), it is also the city's first fireproof home. Heurich was Washington's second largest landowner, the largest private employer in the nation's capital, and as the world's oldest brewer, ran his brewery until his death at 102."

Temperance Fountain - Must See! -

Temperance Fountain

"Henry D. Cogswell was an eccentric dentist from San Francisco who made a fortune from real estate and mining stocks. He wanted to be remembered forever. He also believed Americans were drinking too much alcohol. So, he paid for the building of a number of water fountains like this all over the United States. Cogswell himself designed each fountain and each is unique. Atop the DC fountain is a water crane; in the center are two entwined dolphins. The Cogswell Fountain in DC no longer has water, although there is a city water fountain located a few feet away. Given the notoriously poor quality of DC's water, one wonders whether Cogswell's scheme to get Washingtonians to drink water for their health is such a great idea."

Washington Monument

Washington Monument
Washington, DC, United States

"In 1783, Congress decreed that George Washington deserved a monument as grand as his quest for American democracy and freedom. This decision spurred architect Robert Mills to draw up plans for the Washington Monument, the highest all-masonry tower in the world. Unfortunately, progress wasn't swift: Bureaucratic hurdles and the Civil War impeded the structure's completion until 1885, long after the architect -- and Washington -- had died. At 55 feet wide at the base and 555 feet tall, the white obelisk on the National Mall is made of 36,000 stones of marble from Maryland (the exterior) and granite from Maine (the interior) with a combined weight of 90,000 tons. One interesting feature is the interior iron stairway with 50 landings and 897 stone steps. These donated stones come from every state in the Union, as well as Native American nations and foreign countries. While the stairwell has been closed since the 1970s, visitors can gain access to the top observation area via elevator. Tip: Tickets to go up the monument are free, but need to be reserved in advance. Some day-of tickets are released at the kiosk on the monument grounds at 8AM (be in line by 7:15AM)."
