2009 General Audit Management (GAM) Conference: Session Detail

MUSEM: TUESDAY MARCH 17, 2009, 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

Smithsonian-American History and Natural History Museum Tour

The National Museum of American History collects artifacts of all kinds—from gowns to locomotives—to preserve for the American people an enduring record of their past.

The Museum has more than 3 million artifacts in its collection. Information and photos of selected objects is available in the online collections database. The database is a work-in-progress and new items will be added regularly. A separate database covers archival collections.

The National Museum of Natural History features wonders of the natural world from the world’s largest mammal (a bull elephant) to a newly renovated Insect Zoo. Its great halls feature everything from the skull of a Tyrannosaurus Rex to Ice Age Mammals. You’ll not want to miss the presumably cursed Hope Diamond in the Gem and Mineral Collection! New exhibits include The coelacanth: More Living than Fossil, Everyday Fantasies: The Jeweled Art of Sidney Mobell, and Science in the News. The Museum of Natural History is dedicated to understanding the natural world and our place in it.
