2013 Annual Smithsonian Weekend
One benefit of membership in the James Smithson Society is attending the Annual Smithsonian Weekend. Each year, members gather from around the country to celebrate the Smithsonian programs made possible in part by their generous annual contributions.
We are pleased to announce that the next Smithsonian Annual Weekend will be held September 26 – 28, 2013.
The Saturday evening black-tie celebration dinner will be held at the National Zoo with other events and tours at various Smithsonian museums, both on and off the Mall, throughout the weekend. Members will also have the exciting opportunity to go behind-the-scenes and visit the Smithsonian’s Museum Support Center and the National Museum of the American Indian’s Cultural Resources Center, both in Suitland Maryland. These facilities are not usually open for public viewing.
Previous Smithsonian Weekends
The 2011 annual black-tie celebration dinner was held at the National Air and Space Museum. Members were able to experience many of the Smithsonian museums and research centers through receptions, tours, and presentations by Smithsonian leaders and museums directors.
