Just a snapshot of an amazing collection

One of the most amazing places I have ever visited was the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC. Darlene and I spent 3 full days touring the facilities, scattered over both sides of 'The Mall', yet we only got to see about half of the exhibits and that was at a very brisk pace. The museums at The Smithsonian have some amazing articles in their collections of over 137 million pieces. Among the items are the USS Enterprise model from the TV show, the command module from Apollo 11, Rosa Park's dress and so much more.

This page gives some insight to what kinds of things you might see if you visit.
