Recession Woes

The National Building Museum announced yesterday that it would be charging admission for entry into its exhibitions. Executive Director Chase Rynd said via a press release, “Around the world and in our backyards, the landscape for nonprofit organizations has shifted dramatically. Those who wait too long to realize this truth or dismiss it entirely are likely to become casualties of the era. Under no circumstances will we allow this to be the fate of the National Building Museum." Three annual festivals will still be free of charge (Discover Engineering Family Day, the National Cherry Blossom Family Festival, and the Big Build) as well as access to the Great Hall and docent-led historic building tours.
