Keep It Local: The BIG Maze at the National Building Museum

For the past few years, the National Building Museum has set up pretty awesome architectural putt-putt golf courses. And we've been excited. And we've waited and schemed for the optimal time to go. And then we bombed.

So we were really psyched when we heard that this summer's feature was going to be a BIG maze instead. I mean, you're talking to the kid who asked mom if she could set up a labyrinth with live minotaur (AKA Uncle Steve in costume) for his birthday party. A BIG maze is a BIG deal (and we also now know the difference between a maze and a labyrinth).

We went early one morning this week and had no problem getting tickets (which, to be honest, seem a little ridiculously overpriced even with our membership discount) and ran the maze over and over and over again. Then we spotted a buddy in the maze when we were on the second floor and went back for more. We took a break at Play Work Build, and then went back for more maze. So, it's safe to safe that we got our money's worth at least. Mom loved the grand reveal design and we loved that we could do it endlessly.

It is pricey, but it's worth a visit (given that you get admission to the other museum exhibits) before it disappears on September 1st.
