Not surprisingly, Washington, D.C.'s world-class Smithsonian Institution has a superb presence on the Web. Not only do the individual museums have excellent sites, the
online collections educate, entertain and enlighten. The enormous collection is searchable
by keyword. The Smithsonian has approximately 150 million items in its museums, archives and libraries. If you can't be one of the 35 million visitors to the Smithsonian this year, take a virtual trip. You won't even have to stand in line.
