We are excited to announce our first Insta-Meet – and it’s pretty cool. A dozen followers of the Interior Instagram account ( will be invited to participate in the re-opening of the Washington Monument on May 12, 2014! You will join in the opening festivities and be among the first to go to the top of the Monument since it was closed for repairs after the earthquake in ‘12. Oh, and we’ll throw in an awesome guided tour of the National Mall and all the monuments. We are looking for active Instagram users who will document the day in real time for their followers. To be considered, please go to and fill out the form. We look forward to meeting 12 of you on May 12!
