WASHINGTON, DC-The Nation’s Capital gets a showcase all its own with the recent opening of the City Museum in the Carnegie Library Building. Visitors to the cultural destination have 64,000 sf of space in which to peruse the history of the District. The Clark Construction Group restored and redeveloped the historic property on behalf of the Historical Society of Washington, DC. Construction expenses for the project totaled $12 million.

Conveniently located a stone’s throw form the newly erected Washington, DC Convention Center, the building that houses the City Museum is an historic, three-story structure.
