All Smithsonian museums and the National Zoo are closed due to the federal government shutdown.
The museum’s signature film We the People is a 20-minute celebration of the national ideals of democracy, opportunity and freedom. Stunning footage and a soaring soundtrack take viewers on a journey from past to present, honoring the visionary ideas, significant sacrifices and remarkable fortitude of the people who built our country, one generation at a time. Produced by Smithsonian Channel.
Tickets for this show are free and are available only at the box office.
