About the Tour

The Think Wood Mobile Tour is a museum-quality display that showcases the environmental and economic benefits of softwood lumber and engineered wood products in both residential and commercial construction. The traveling exhibit features interactive elements, product and connection examples, and models, telling the wood story from forest to market.

The tour is provided in partnership by the Softwood Lumber Board, U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities, and the APA – Engineered Wood Association, and is endorsed by the National Building Museum.
As of March 16, 2020, the Softwood Lumber Board has suspended the Think Wood Mobile Tour. With states of emergency imposed in several states and events canceled nationwide, it is prudent to do so. SLB staff will continue to monitor and adjust activities based on guidance from authorities on risk assessment and mitigation protocols.

Take the 360 virtual tour!

Follow the green guided paths at the start of the tour, or explore at your own pace, following the white arrows on the wood floor. Take each path and use your cursor to explore the surroundings and more information on each element.

For the best experience, we recommend using Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari or the new Microsoft Edge. Enjoy exploring!
