Capitol Hill-area residents are set to have the opportunity to chill out in a “fantastical glacial sea” with an undersea bridge and ice chute for free next week, according to the National Building Museum.

The Ward 6 day for the NBM’s “Icebergs” exhibit is scheduled for Tuesday from 9-11 a.m, according to the museum’s website. To get in without paying, Ward 6 residents must bring identification cards that show their zip codes.

The installation at 401 F St. NW will open to the general public at 10 a.m. But if they’re not members of the museum, they’ll have to pay between $13 and $16.

Firehook Bakery and Daikaya also will have snacks, including Japanese “kakigori” shaved ice.

The museum adds on it website:

ICEBERGS is built from re-usable construction materials, such as scaffolding and polycarbonate paneling, a material commonly used in building greenhouses. The 20′ high “water line” allows panoramic views from high above the ocean surface and down below among the towering bergs. The tallest “bergy bit,” at 56′, reaches to the third story balcony of the Museum. ICEBERGS occupies a total area of 12,540 square feet.
