City Museum of Washington, D.C.

City Museum of Washington, D.C.

Situated in what once was the Carnegie Library of Washington, D.C, this museum continues in the important tradition of encouraging community life and education by showcasing the rich history of the city of Washington DC, its residents, neighborhoods, and community life.

Exhibition spaces were designed to meet the need for flexibility and evolution. The 65,000 s.f. project includes a permanent exhibition gallery, a changing exhibition gallery, special exhibition gallery, a library, an education department, a theater, a visitor’s information center, and food concession amenities, as well as administration offices, loading dock, and support spaces.

The project was completed in 2003, in association with Devrouax & Purnell Architects, for the Historical Society of Washington DC, The City Museum of Washington DC, & The City of Washington DC.
