Draw on the walls of The National Building Museum without getting kicked out!

Set down that adult coloring book, or if you’re like me, your child’s coloring book. And get thee to The National Building Museum   for your life size doodling pleasure. Wright on the Walls is the newest exhibit at my favorite museum in Washington D.C. and it allows children of all ages to do the unthinkable, doodle on the walls.

The exhibit honors the 150th birthday of architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright, was also a pianist and drew inspiration from classical music. We entered the brightly lit exhibit  greeted by this favorite soothing classical melodies. As quiet as a library people were intently coloring in outlines of his buildings and stained glass designs while a couple were softly giggling in the corner.

EEEEEE, EEEEE that was the sound of Ooey screeching. We definitely changed the vibe as I filled up her bin with every color of dry erase marker. She sat on my lap and commanded me to draw, I complied and she erased my efforts while laughing. This went on until other children showed up and we were no longer the only loud mouths in the room.

This exhibit is a MUST visit, it’s totally enjoyable AND it’s at an already kid friendly museum, I wrote a full review of the museum which you can see, here.

It only takes one toddler to change the mood from peaceful to jubilant.
