The Smithsonian Institution is the world's largest museum, education, and research complex. We are a community of learning and an opener of doors. Join us on a voyage of discovery and explore and learn online.


As we reopen, we’re putting safety first. See our hours and admission information and safety protocols to plan your visit. Timed-entry passes are required at three locations.

No matter where you are, you can visit us online. Explore our digital resources or attend an online event.
