About Us

The Star-Spangled Banner, Abraham Lincoln’s pocket watch, Ben Franklin’s suit, the Ruby Slippers—these are just a few of the more than three million objects collected and cared-for by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History (NMAH). As the only museum dedicated to telling the entire story of America’s history, the museum uses its collections, its people, and its programs to help visitors explore what it means to be an American.
