Smithsonian Instuition

It's in the details...
Thanks to James Smithson who never even visited the United States we are blessed to have the Smithsonian Institution. It consists of 19 museums in and around Washington D.C. and has 168 affiliate museums around the globe. They consist of over 137 million pieces of objects, art work and specimens. That's allot of museum time! The castle pictured here today is the original start of this great institution.

The building alone is a piece of art.
