A Museum Asked Local Architects To Design A Mini-Golf Course, And Here's What They Came Up With

Prefer a round of golf to a trip to the museum? At the National Building Museum in Washington DC this summer, you can do both.

The museum just opened an exhibit featuring a 12-hole mini-golf course with holes designed by leading local architects, landscape architects, and contractors.

The one-of-a-kind course will be open through labour Day, and games cost $5 for non-members and $3 for members. If you like golf and air-conditioning, this exhibit’s for you.

Check out some of the designer’s creations, below.
