The National Building Museum Creates an Indoor Beach

Landlocked Paris has its faux beaches along the Seine to keep locals and tourists cool during the summer. And this year, the Inhabitant Building Museum has adopted a similar thought by giving Washington, DC, its first 10,000-square-foot indoor beach.

Located in the Fantastic Hall, the beach — where it’s always 70 degrees, according to museum’s website — has white lounge chairs and umbrellas on its 50-foot-wide shoreline, an ocean of 700,000 white plastic balls, and a snack bar. In addendum to attracting kids and tourists, the beach has become a fixed lunch-break spot for nearby staff to soak in the fun ambience that the museum has made as part of its annual Summer Block Party.

The beach closes Sept. 7, but until then, visitors can delight in a dip in the ocean, read a book on the shore or play beach-related games such as paddleball. No sunscreen vital.
