PLAY.WORK.BUILD.

PLAY.WORK.BUILD.

On November 18th, the National Building Museum and Rockwell Group will present PLAY WORK BUILD – a hands-on exhibition combining the Museum’s unique Architectural Toy Collection with Imagination Playground. Through this presentation of block play, children are given the opportunity to reconfigure their environment and design their own course of play. Families will be able to collectively experience the connection between early examples of imaginative play and its modern-day interpretation. In doing so, visitors to the exhibition will perceive and appreciate the historical significance of play in a hands-on, interactive environment.
