At the U.S. Botanic Garden there was a special exhibit of model buildings. Each building is made entirely out of plant material and is modeled after a building on the U.S. Mall. The Garden Railway exhibit was also built around ancient and modern monuments from around the world, also built entirely out of plant material.
