The Museum takes care of more than three million objects that preserve the memories and experiences of the American people. We constantly enrich the collections with new acquisitions and research, and provide the public with a strong sense of the American identity through exhibitions and programs that look at the major themes of our national experience. At the National Museum of American History everyone can explore uniquely American ideals, freedom, democracy, opportunity, and the belief in progress -- something we call the American Dream -- that have shaped our nation.
