Let's Get Started!

You're now just a few clicks away from discovering millions of exciting new learning opportunities housed in the Smithsonian Learning Lab's digital collection of resources from across its museums, research centers, and the national zoo.

Whether you're curious about a particular topic or eager to be surprised, the Learning Lab will help you discover, create, and share what you find with the world. The Learning Lab is a digital platform that empowers you to explore what was once available only to those physically visiting the Smithsonian as well as untapped resources that are not normally on display due to space constraints.

The Learning Lab allows you to customize the content you collect and create personalized learning experiences that may be of benefit to others, too. Our hope is that you'll share your discoveries and expertise in ways that transform the Learning Lab into a community of users that spans not just the Smithsonian but also the globe.
