A Magazine, Museums and Research Complex

The Smithsonian Institution, a renowned museum and research organization in Washington D.C., releases a monthly periodical known as the Smithsonian. This magazine is well written in an easy to read format, highly informative, and a great way to keep up on the diverse topics it covers. The Smithsonian articles include a variety of topics including Art, Architecture, Archaeology, Travel, World and American History and many more.

My favorite sections of the Smithsonian magazine are the monthly articles titled "This Month in History" and "From the Castle". "This Month in History" covers 20, 50, 90, 140 and 150 years ago, giving historical highlights from around the world and America. "From the Castle" informs about the Smithsonian Institute facility, the world's largest museum and research complex (per a flyer from the Smithsonian). This section informs about what the Smithsonian Institution is doing, researching, and / or what exhibits are in the museums.

Since the 1980's I have been a subscriber to the Smithsonian. This magazine is definitely worth the annual subscription fee. The Smithsonian is an excellent magazine that assists its readers into participating in a fabulously fun knowledge gathering journey while it shares spectacular photographs, graphs or charts related to the articles. Something none should miss!

I highly recommend the Smithsonian for High School and University level students and adults who want to continue to be abreast of the Smithsonian Museum, scientific community's research findings, plus much more from the "establishment for the increase and diffusion of knowledge." (per James Smithsonian, 19th century British scientist in his last will and testament that set up the funding for the Smithsonian Institution.)

This periodical is also great for those who are fun loving and curious about the world around them. I further recommend visiting the Smithsonian Institution. It is a great place filled with many wonders. Enjoy!
