“It's the architecture”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

The Old Executive Office Buildings charm is its architecture. It is very ornate both inside and out. It would be worth going on the tour to learn its history and how it has been used and how it's being used now.

“Beautiful Building”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Not open to the public, but a gorgeous example of Victorian architecture. It was almost torn down in the 60s when everyone wanted to fill DC with concrete boxes.

“Historic”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

I am not sure if they are open to the public with tours however if you can get in the door its worth seeing! Ask about the staircases and the role they have played in the building....

“Old Executive Office Building (Exterior Architecture)”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

For years, even before I knew what the name of this building was, it was my favorite building in DC. I especially like the way it reflects in the large plate glass windows across 17th St.

“Old, old and old!”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

A five story extremely old building in D.C. It looks like it could topple over at any minute. This structure has been here forever but hasn't been kept up very well in my opinion.
