Praise For…

“With more than 135 million things in its collection, the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, offers museumgoers ample opportunity to satisfy their curiosity about almost anything. But where to begin? This handy book, part tour guide, part history, supplies kids with brief facts about how the institution began, then treats them to a peek at some of the treasures housed in the three most popular museum buildings, the National Air and Space Museum, the National Museum of Natural History, and the National Museum of American History. The information about the exhibits is fascinating, and there’s plenty of it. Illustrations are plentiful, too. The photos are quite interesting.”—Booklist
