Discover a robust assortment of virtual experiences at the Smithsonian Institution’s 19 museums, galleries, gardens and National Zoo. Among the hundreds of digital experiences: a look at the presidential portraits in the National Portrait Gallery, a peek at Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 11 spacesuit, and the chance to print a scale model of a T. rex skull.

In an age old dance wind, water, and land combine here. Sparkling in the sun on a breezy day, this natural area of Anacostia Park has origins in a 1926 act of Congress to preserve the forests, water quality, and recreation value of the waterways of Washington, DC. The park reflects the policies that affect rivers and wetlands. Come, join the dance.

Spanning more than 17,500 acres, Rock Creek Park is a true oasis in the nation's capital. Highlights include Georgetown Waterfront Park on the Potomac, a beloved green space for cyclists, skaters, and pedestrians, and the Nature Center Planetarium, the only planetarium in the National Park Service.
