The Smithsonian

The Smithsonian Castle in Washington, D.C. is emblematic of the entire Smithsonian organization. Here is a very short explanation of its function today from the Smithsonian Website.
Completed in 1855, the Castle is our signature building and home to the Smithsonian Visitor Center. As such, it makes a great starting point for your journey—here you can get a grasp of the scope and scale of the Smithsonian, see collections highlights from each of our museums, tour the Castle’s 19th-century architecture, see what’s going on today at all the museums, and consult with our in-house experts about what to see and do.
