Smithsonian Institution
by Chaval Luppi (Chaval) FIRST POTD!
Camera:
Olympus SP-550UZ
Location:
Washington, DC
 
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
The Smithsonian Institution wears many hats, from the one worn by Harrison Ford in the Indiana Jones movies to the one worn by Abraham Lincoln the night he was assassinated. One of the world's leading cultural institutions, the Smithsonian houses more than 137 million pieces in 19 museums and galleries, most of which are on the National Mall in Washington, DC. Some 20 million people every year view the Smithsonian's exhibits on art, music, TV and film, science, history, and other subjects. Admission to all but one of the Smithsonian's facilities is free; only the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York charges admission. The Smithsonian receives about 80% of its funding from the federal government.

I love visiting there, haven't been for years but it remains a fond memory. Congrats on your first POTD. I'm sure we will see many more.
