A message from Lonnie Bunch, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution
All Smithsonian museums in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area and New York City, including the National Zoo, will be temporarily closed to the public starting Saturday, March 14. Due to the rapidly changing nature of the situation, we are not announcing a re-opening date at this time and will provide updates on a week-to-week basis.
The health and safety of our visitors and staff are a top priority, and we are monitoring the guidance of local public health officials and the CDC.
