Smithsonian’s Orphans

Hosted by  • 

The Smithsonian is often described as America’s attic -- the place where we store all sorts of historical items and ephemera. With 137 million objects, it’s the largest museum in the world. But some of those objects -- even entire collections -- are sitting in boxes, gathering dust, without anyone looking after them.
