      This is very exciting Thanks Hovig!
      When will it be ready?

      My pleasure; it was originally supposed to open in 2006 or 2007 but I've heard it's pushed back to 2009...

      Although the project started in 2000 -- it's still not finished. I was hoping to go there on my Washington DC Tours vacation later this year but haven't been able to find definitive info on when it will be completed and open.

      Latest information is that AGMA is slated for opening before 2011 although still no definitive date that I can find. Also--The historically-designated former National Bank of Washington building in which AGMA will be housed is located at the intersection of 14th and G Streets, NW, Washington, DC 20005.
