The Bigger Picture: Visual Archives and the Smithsonian
Design + Archives = National Museum of History and Technology
At the Archives there are very few three-dimensional objects in our collections. One that we do have is an architectural model of the Museum of History and Technology (now the National Museum of American History) dated July 12, 1956. It is labeled "Scheme D." Also included are two smaller models, that were probably used to show the massing of the building on the site.
