Due to the winter storm, the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and museums in the Washington, D.C. area will be closed Wednesday, Feb. 20.
Big Bird in space. Saving a multi-million-dollar painting. Smokey the real Bear. These are some of the stories we've been itching to share, but didn’t have room for … until now. To close out Season 2, we’re serving up a few of our favorite Smithsonian “shorties.” Plus, we’ll check in with our most talked-about characters from this past year. We’ll be back for Season 3 in August 2018!
Learn about the amazing, important work at the Lunder Conservation Center, located on the third floor of the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Do you want more information on Smokey the Bear? We've got that too—in an article written by the Smithsonian Institution Archives all about our favorite fire-fighting mammal. And if you're craving more stories from the stars, the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum's website has lots for you to dig into.
