Whether you’re a regular visitor to Smithsonian museums on the Mall, have always wanted to visit, or just know it from a movie as a place where magical things happen at night, here’s one thing that’s sure: There’s so much more to the Smithsonian waiting for you to discover. And there’s no better or more authoritative way to discover its many facets than from Sherri Wheeler, the Smithsonian’s director of visitors services.

She’s ready to give you a lively introduction to its 19 museums and galleries, 9 research centers, and one beloved zoo—a whirlwind virtual tour that covers destinations from D.C. to New York City, Massachusetts to Florida, and even Panama. In a fast-moving session filled with fun facts, practical tips and resources, and plenty of surprises, find out why the Smithsonian is far more than just a repository of America’s history and how its exciting and important work across many fields is actively shaping our collective knowledge, our future, and that of our planet.

You’ll also learn how the Smithsonian’s expanding online presence is opening its doors even wider and how you can visit recently reopened museums. If you’re a local planning you next trip or if your future holds a trip of a lifetime, this panoramic view of a national treasure is the perfect way to start building the excitement.
