The National Building Museum puts its mission to "explore the world we build for ourselves" into literal practice with its distinctive and popular Construction Watch Tours. A hallmark of the Museum's programming since its beginning, these tours provide Museum members an up-close understanding of the construction and design of many of Washington's fascinating building projects—from bridges and embassies to museums and condominiums.

Construction Watch Tours are open only to Museum members. Members of The Corinthians, The Builders, and The Professional Circle receive advance registration, typically one week in advance of registration for general members.Want to join us on a Construction Watch Tour?
