Friends In my last post I Share information about “The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History” in this post I give more information about the History of this museum.

Nearly 50 years ago, on June 28, 1955, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the bill authorizing $36 million for the museum. Groundbreaking took place on August 22, 1958. The architects were McKim, Mead and White (succeeded in 1961 by Steinman, Cain and White). Mills, Petticord and Mills were associate and supervising architects and engineers. The Museum’s area is approximately 750,000 square feet, including a basement, three main exhibition levels, two office-collection levels and a mechanical penthouse on the roof. Its status as one of the last structures designed by the renowned architectural firm of McKim, Mead and White, along with its location, makes it eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

In 1980, the Museum’s name was changed to the National Museum of American History to better represent its basic mission—the collection, care and study of objects that reflect the experience of the American people.

The National Museum of American History was opened to the public in Jan 1964 as the Museum of History and Technology. it was the 6th Smithsonian building on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Since then, some thousand visitors a year have passed through the doors to enjoy the Museum’s exhibitions, public programs etc.

The museum's state-of-the-art "Star-Spangled Banner" gallery showcases the flag that inspired Francis Scott Key to write the lyrics of the national anthem. The new artifact walls, glass-fronted cases that line the first and second-floor center corridors, contain hundreds of storied artifacts from the museum's three-million-item collection. In the galleries and exhibition halls, visitors will find the top hat that President Lincoln wore the night he was assassinated at Ford's Theatre, the portable desk that Thomas Jefferson used to write the Declaration of Independence and hundreds of other cherished items that together tell the nation's story.
