    Disappointing errors

    We enjoyed putting the puzzle layers together. It was interesting to work on a puzzle where the pieces are all the same. My husband generally works by shape so he had a new challenge. I work by picture so it seemed easier.

    We were disappointed by the number of errors mostly caused by the wrong size of the building models. The White House is disproportionately large and should be positioned between the Treasury Building and the Old Executive Office Building. Because the model size of both The National Museum of Natural History and The National Gallery of Art is too large, The National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden, which should be directly south of the National Archives, is missing. The Art Museum of the Americas is on 18th St, behind the Organization of American States Building, not on 17th St. The model is too large. The Bureau of Engraving & Printing is flipped east to west. It opens on the east side not the west. The Smithsonian Castle sits on a curve (which is missing) in Jefferson Drive causing it to be slightly north of the Arts and Industries Building. The Renwick Gallery is on the East side of 17th St., across Pennsylvania Ave from the Old Executive Office Building, and not as depicted in the building facades chart as big as the capitol. In the facade chart the names on items 4, the Smithsonian Building (Castle), and 5, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, are switched. The diagram on the back of the box labels the Supreme Court Building as the Smithsonian Museum of American Art.

    I'm guessing that there are more discrepancies that weren't so obvious. It's a shame that an educational tool such as this isn't more accurate.
