Washington's most beloved museums trace the arc of American architecture, from the Gothic Smithsonian Castle to the modern Museum of African American History and Culture. Romanesque to Victorian, neoclassical to Brutalist, each unique building is an architectural study all its own. Learn about the style, design, controversy, construction, and fascinating backstory behind these celebrated museums. Highlights include:

  • Smithsonian Castle & Garden
