Smithsonian museums continue to be closed to support the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. No re-opening date is available at this time. Check our website and social media for updates.

Don't Stop Now!

Are you ready to continue your work at the Smithsonian and apply the skills you mastered in Ripped Apart? How about becoming a real intern at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.?

The Smithsonian accepts internship applications from students, ages of fourteen and up. To learn more check out the National Museum of American History internship website or the central Smithsonian internship website.


Can’t come to Washington, D.C.?

No problem, you can volunteer at the Smithsonian Transcription Center! Through this volunteer work you would be making historic documents and collections records more accessible to facilitate research and excite the learning in everyone.
