Seriously Amazing Objects

America: land of liberty, opportunity, and some Seriously Amazing Objects, many of which are on display or in the archives of the Smithsonian Institution. Join us as we whisk unsuspecting museum visitors inside the vaults to get up close and personal with some of history's great treasures. From the Spirit of St. Louis to the Model T, and from Edison's light bulb to Seinfeld's "puffy shirt," this series celebrates our nation's explorers, trailblazers, and megastars, sharing their stories through unforgettable objects.
