137 million artifacts, works of art and specimens in the Smithsonian’s collection
The Smithsonian Institution houses over 137 million artifacts, works-of-art, and specimens. Unfortunately, they can only display a fraction of their collection at a time, and many historically significant pieces may never be exhibited to the public. However, replicas of some of these pieces are available online for public examination.
The Smithsonian has an extensive collection that covers nearly every subject imaginable. Its collection includes full-size planes, missiles, satellites, and spacecraft, as well as thousands of smaller items. The Museum’s collections also include memorabilia, photographs, and models, as well as scientific and technical drawings.
While the Smithsonian displays only a small portion of its collections, it acquires many others for research. Many scientists from around the world use the Smithsonian to gather knowledge. The Smithsonian also works to maintain and protect its collections.
In addition to collections, Smithsonian has affiliates in 45 states and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. There are even museums in Panama. With over 137 million artifacts, works of art, and specimens in the collection, there’s definitely something to pique your interest.
The Smithsonian Institution is the largest museum complex in the world. It includes 19 museums, the National Zoological Park, and the National Museum of Natural History. Its collections are made up of irreplaceable historical artifacts, works of art, scientific specimens, and cultural exhibits. Guided tours and hands-on activities are available for visitors to learn more about the museum’s fascinating collections.
Joseph Henry’s original intent was to make the Smithsonian a place where science could be conducted. This mission eventually evolved into a collection of government collections in Washington, D.C. That includes the National Zoological Park and the National Museum of Natural History, which opened in June 1911. Both museums were designed by architects Hornblower & Marshall.
