The Smithsonian Associates initiates a program of domestic and foreign study tours. The first domestic tour was to the San Antonio, Texas, Fiesta. The first foreign tour was to Germany to visit castles and palaces associated with Queen Victoria of England. The tours are accompanied by Smithsonian curators and scholars or other experts, and when possible include behind-the-scenes tours of Smithsonian exhibits and research projects.
