WASHINGTON (WNEW/AP) — The Smithsonian is hosting a viewing party for the final match of the World Cup.
The Smithsonian says fans are invited to watch Sunday’s game between Argentina and Germany in the courtyard of the building that houses the National Portrait Gallery and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
Fans will get to watch the game on a 21-foot video wall. The courtyard is enclosed and has air conditioning.
The building is in Washington’s Chinatown neighborhood near the Verizon Center.
At the National Harbor, the match will also be shown on a Jumbotron near the pier.
But the watch parties aren’t exclusive to D.C. Montgomery County will host a free viewing party at the Silver Spring Veterans Plaza, located on the corner of Fenton Street and Ellsworth Drive.
The match is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m.
