Synopsis
This documentary takes the viewer on a tour of the series of museums that comprise the Smithsonian Institute. Located in Washington, D.C., the Smithsonian Institute was created by an act of the United States Congress in 1846. British scientist James Smithson gave the money for "an establishment for the increase and diffusion of knowledge among men." With actor/dancer Gene Kelly as guide, the film traces America's heritage and achievements by looking at art treasures and artifacts at the museums of art, history, and science. There is something for everyone -- from dinosaur skeletons to mummies to the Wright Brothers plane -- in this film tour of the Smithsonian. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
