My BIG Smithsonian Adventure – Seriously Amazing!


I can’t believe I have been at the Smithsonian for 6 weeks already!  I have learned so much and still have a lot yet to discover.  The hardest part is not having enough time (between my graduate school assignments, research, work, and internship) to take advantage of all the wonderful programs and activities they have to offer!

The Smithsonian Associates – a division of the Smithsonian Institution – offers more than 750 programs every year.  That’s a lot.

Their programs cover a wide variety of topics:

…and in variety of formats:

My job as the E-Marketing Intern is to assist the staff with their Web/E-Marketing efforts to inform, excite, and encourage audiences to explore and participate in the wealth of cultural and educational programs provided by The Smithsonian Associates.

Understandably, the Smithsonian Institution as a whole is even bigger in size!  Did you know that the Smithsonian is composed of not one, but 19 different museums, plus 9 research centers, and the National Zoo?

SI Museums:

  • Smithsonian Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art
  • Smithsonian American Art MuseumRenwick Gallery
  • Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian (NYC)
  • American Indian Museum Heye Center
  • Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture
