The repository for such popular national icons as the Star-Spangled Banner, Archie Bunker's chair and various First Ladies' gowns, this unique museum captures the essence of America by presenting the objects and ideas that have figured prominently in the nation's material and social development. Now numbering more than 3 million objects, the museum's collections occupy entertaining and educational displays in the newly renovated structure on the north side of the Mall.
