More than 100 works of art, artifacts, documents, and photographs reflect the breadth of American experiences. A fragment of the original Star-Spangled Banner serves as a starting point to investigate the broad history and representation of the United States flag as an icon of our nation and its people.
The Building Zone introduces children to the building arts through play in an interactive gallery of hands-on activities for the Museum's youngest visitors.
