Museum Admission Tickets
The National Building Museum is a private, non-profit institution. Your admission fee helps the Museum deliver world-class exhibitions and programming.
General exhibition admission is FREE for Museum members and children aged 2 and under. Museum membership cards must be presented at the Member Admission Desk.
Exhibition tickets are valid for one-time use and expire six months after date of purchase.
Because of limited space, entry to the Building Zone is available in person on a first-come, first-served basis, day of visit.
All tickets are non-refundable/non-returnable. We are unable to issue exchanges or refunds after a purchase has been made or for lost, stolen, damaged, or destroyed tickets.
