All Smithsonian museums and the National Zoo are closed due to the federal government shutdown.
Smithsonian is a community of learning and the opener of doors. Whether you are visiting in person or online, we invite you come in and explore your interests, discover something new, or spark a memory. Our vast collections and the research surrounding them are available to you on a kaleidoscope of topics—from art to zoology.
We Are Smithsonian
