Have you ever wondered how a dome is built? The first dome of the U.S. Capitol, completed in the 1820s, was made of wood and covered in copper. The magnificent dome we know today was completed in 1866 and is made of cast iron! Young learners will be introduced to the architectural significance and strength of domes by learning about the U.S Capitol current and past buildings. Afterwards we will work together to build domes of our own using newspaper, tape, and teamwork! Ages 6+

The Skyscraper Museum

About Founded in 1996, The Skyscraper Museum is a private, not-for-profit, educational corporation devoted to the study of high-rise building, past, present, and future. Located in New York City, the world's first and foremost vertical metropolis, the museum celebrates the city's rich architectural heritage and examines the historical forces and individuals that have shaped its successive skylines. Through exhibitions, programs, and publications, the museum explores tall buildings as objects of design, products of technology, sites of construction, investments in real estate, and places of work and residence.
