A giant wooden horse on wheels called “Troy” is invading the District in the coming days.
The 19-foot, 3,700-pound replica of the ancient Greeks’ Trojan horse is scheduled to arrive at the National Geographic Museum (1145 17th St. NW) Thursday, according to a representative of the organization. National Geographic is installing Troy in its “The Greeks: Agamemnon to Alexander the Great” exhibit, which is set to run from June 1 to Oct. 10.
Troy is currently making its way from Chicago via a 48-foot long flatbed truck.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether Troy will be empty when it comes to D.C.
