The Smithsonian offers eleven museums and galleries on the National Mall plus six other museums and the National Zoo in the greater National Capital Area. In New York City, we invite you to tour two museums in historic settings.

Not near a Smithsonian museum? Look for exhibitions and affiliate museums in your community.

Most Smithsonian museums and the National Zoo are temporarily closed. As we gradually reopen the museums, we’re putting safety first and requiring free timed-entry passes. See our reopening schedule to plan your visit. Outdoor gardens and exhibitions are open.
