With new platforms and tools, you can access nearly 3 million 2D and 3D digital items from the Smithsonian’s massive collection. It also includes text, still images, sound recordings, research datasets and collections data.
Included in the collection are images and data from the Smithsonian’s 19 museums, nine research centers, libraries, archives and the National Zoo.
