How to create a cool new museum in your backyard
Posted On July 6, 2021
The Smithsonian’s Science Museum in Washington, D.C., is in the process of turning into a museum of its own.
The project, which is called ScienceMuseum, is expected to be completed in time for its centennial in 2021.
Here’s how it will work: In 2019, a group of volunteers will be responsible for creating a theme park-style museum in their backyard.
The theme park theme park is what the museum will be named after, and the museum is set to have a unique collection of art from around the world.
“We are going to be showcasing all the things we’ve got that we’re passionate about, from the best of the best science to the latest trends in technology,” says Sarah Smith, a curator at the Smithsonian.
The museum will also house the world’s largest collection of botanical specimens.
In addition to the collection of specimens, the museum also will include a collection of historical artifacts from the United States, a collection from Europe, and a collection representing the best examples of American art and architecture.
ScienceMulumuseum is the brainchild of Sarah Smith and her husband, David Smith.
The couple have been in the business of collecting and preserving American art for more than a decade, and they plan to open their own museum in 2019.
“It’s about being in your home, and being able to go to the museums and see all of the things that you love, and it’s about seeing the world and taking that to the next level,” says Smith.
She says the couple hopes the museum won’t be just for collectors.
“I’m a collector.
We’re just trying to make sure that this museum has something that’s going to make you feel proud of who you are, and that’s why we’re trying to take our passion for science and our love of art and science and art and art to this new level.”
ScienceMoolah will be in a renovated 19th-century mansion in the heart of downtown Washington, DC.
The house will be a space for science museums, science education, and other science-related activities.
The team is also going to add a science museum exhibit for the general public.
The Smithsonian will have a full kitchen and full bathrooms.
