This model will require more than one sitting to build it. We advise to pause between different stages as you work, especially when you come to gluing. The white glue softens the paper and it may lead to misshapen parts if you do not allow them to dry well before proceeding further with assembling. Click here to watch our paper model building tips.

Give yourself enough time to enjoy the process and achieve the best result!

The Washington Monument, located in the National Mall in Washington, D.C., is a prominent American national monument dedicated to George Washington, the first President of the United States. This towering obelisk is a symbol of national reverence for one of the country's most revered founding fathers.

Construction of the monument began in 1848 but was halted from 1854 to 1877 due to lack of funds and the Civil War, leading to its completion in 1884. The structure was officially opened to the public in 1888. The monument stands at an impressive height of 555 feet (169 meters), making it one of the tallest stone structures in the world. It's made of marble, granite, and bluestone gneiss, and its design was inspired by ancient Egyptian obelisks.

The interior of the monument contains an elevator and a staircase that leads to an observation deck providing panoramic views of the city.
