The world's largest museum and research complex, with 19 museums, 9 research centers and more than 140 affiliate museums around the world.
Jennifer Brickey's insight:

The Smithsonian offers archives of articles, encyclopedia references, and collections that relate to a variety of topics. The site may not have as much in the way of primary sources, but it definitely offers articles that speak directly to the topics being covered in social science classes. For example, the cover of the June edition of Smithsonian magazine displays the 200th anniversary of the Star-Spangled Banner.
