I visited this museum building twice when I was in Washington in September. It is a brilliant building to experience in person. I was happy to have been able to borrow and read this book at my local Canadian library branch before leaving on my trip. It was a wonderful introduction to a bold new museum. A museum where the subject matter is both emotionally seering and joyful. The cover illustration of the building actually under construction was an inspired choice. I was thrilled to find this lovely book.
