A look at the Smithsonian Institution website

Now you can access a small sampling of the hallowed halls of the world’s largest museum and research complex without dragging the family to Washington, D.C. In an appropriately stuffy style, the mammoth Smithsonian Institution site houses more than 1,500 pages of highlights from the Smithsonian’s 16 museums and galleries and the National Zoo, as well as answers to frequently asked questions and helpful tips for tourists. Each museum section includes extensive text complemented all too infrequently by photographs and the occasional video or audio clip. An impressive resource, this splendid collection just may leave you thirsting for the real thing. B+
