Smithsonian National Board: Your Smithsonian Stories

This Smithsonian Learning Lab collection features Smithsonian resources selected by the Smithsonian National Board at the October 2017 convening. We prompted, "Choose a museum resource that has meaning to you and tell us why." Each resource tile includes a brief description of the Board Member's selection. These resources represent a wide range of artistic endeavors, cultural understandings, historic events, and scientific discoveries that have meaning to participating Board Members. #MySmithsonianStory
