Museum Will Occupy Former Real World House

A small museum near Logan Circle will soon relocate to Dupont in the former Real World house.

The Laogai Museum opened in late 2008 is currently located in a row house at 1109 M Street NW (closed during transition). The museum is described as fairly small and has a narrow subject focus: the laogai system of prison work camps in China.

The new location is 2000 S Street NW. You may remember this house as the setting for MTV's Real World reality television show from the summer of 2009. Laogai Museum will occupy the ground floor; upper floors have been converted to offices.

The museum website is documenting the build out process with photos and even a finished exhibition layout. They plan to open during the spring of this year.
