national building museum: house and home

One house represented in the show
(and I have a thing for Sausalito houseboats)

We stopped in at the National Building Museum over the holiday weekend, intending to see this building-toy exhibit—and after a few so-so minutes spent with blue foam blocks, we wandered into House and Home. This show contains photographs and models of all kinds of homes, both generic (suburban split level) and quite famous (Fallingwater, the Glass House). The best part? A film, set to music and with no narration, of different families and individuals in their homes, from a lavish Tucson desert spread to a mini (really, really mini) house in backyard. My kids sat mesmerized for the whole thing, which is saying something. And I was sorry it didn't last longer.
