Washingtonians and visitors to our nation’s capital are familiar with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, the Air and Space Museum, the National Museum of Natural History, and maybe even the Portrait Gallery and the National Museum of the American Indian. But few are aware of the behind-the-scenes departments such as the Smithsonian Institute for Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES), Smithsonian Center for Digital Learning and Access (SCDLA), or Friends of the Smithsonian. (Did you know that the Smithsonian is the world’s largest museum complex? Or that it houses over 138 million artifacts?)
Of course there are museums other than those of the Smithsonian, many of whom are also Fuszion clients. The International Spy Museum is truly one of a kind (yes, you can become a spy, claiming the entire life story of another human being); and both the National Children’s Museum and EXPLORE! Washington DC Children’s Museum literally and figuratively bring learning and doing down to a child’s level.
