Smithsonian Institution

The Smithsonian Institution is a group of museums and research centres dedicated to providing knowledge in many areas to visitors. The Institution is managed by the United States government and includes a zoo. It is the largest museum complex in the world and is free to visitors. Eleven of the buildings are located in Washington, D.C. on the National Mall, while the rest of the buildings are either located elsewhere in the city or in other locations. Guests to the city cannot hope to see everything the Smithsonian Institution has in one or two days, but should hit the highlights.

  • Visit the Natural History Museum in Washington, D.C., one of the most popular buildings in the Smithsonian Institution, to see many relics of the country’s past.
  • Spend a day at the National Zoo, fun for all ages and home to around 2,000 animals with almost a fourth of them being endangered.
  • Enjoy the outdoors at the Smithsonian Institution Gardens in Washington, D.C. as they weave around the museums and provide a beautiful view of nature.

Visitors will have easy access to the Smithsonian Institution from other areas of Washington, D.C. There is no public parking facility on the grounds and on-street parking is limited. However, if you hire a car, you can find parking lots and garages located a few blocks away. Visitors can also take the Blue and Orange lines of the metro station near the National Museum of Natural History. The Smithsonian Institution is located just off Constitution Avenue and takes three hours to walk around the entire grounds. Visitors can also hire a taxi if they don’t want to fight the traffic.
