Experience History

Middle school and high school students can experience an exciting, educational trip to DC where they can tour the Smithsonian museum, national monuments, and memorials. The Smithsonian museum was the vision of British Scientist James Smithson. He left his estate to the United States and in 1846, President James Polk established the Smithsonian Museum. The Smithsonian Museum is the largest museum system in the world, consisting of nineteen museums, a zoo, and 136 million items in its collection. Sonshine Educational Tours guide teachers and students through the Smithsonian on their trip to DC. Three of the most popular museums include the American History Museum, Air and Space Museum, and Natural History Museum.
