American Identity

Many of the National Museum of American History’s treasures give insight into what it has meant to be an American.

Culturally, Americans have defined themselves in many ways—through artistic expression, ethnic traditions, work and play, and home and community life. The Museum’s collections reflect the diverse roots of American culture as well as common experiences shared across lines of race, ethnicity, and region.
