If the Smithsonian is the nation’s attic, then The Arts and Industries Building is the attic’s attic. The Smithsonian would like to open the National African American Museum here in 2002, so some exhibits have already been moved in, but they are an odd combination with the locomotive and steam engines that now have no home.

However, the Arts and Industries Building is still a worthwhile trip. The Discovery room offers great kids shows and programs (call to find out showtimes) , and the old carousel in front of the building is a nice diversion.
