The Smithsonian's National Museum of American History Opens a New Wing

What grabs your interest in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History? Is it Dorothy’s ruby slippers, an actual 199-ton locomotive, Julia Child’s kitchen, or the first ladies’ gowns?

John Gray presides over it all and seeks even more ways to connect Americans with their history.

On today’s episode of News Channel 8’s “Let’s Talk Live,” John Gray is here with David Bruce Smith, whose Grateful American™ Foundation is dedicated to restoring enthusiasm in American history for kids, and adults.

Reporter Sonya Gavankar asks:

  1. John: Let’s start with you — what is your favorite exhibit at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History?
  2. David: Same question goes to you. What’s your first stop when you walk through the doors?
  3. John: Tell us a little about this amazing museum that has long been one of the most popular stops in DC. You have presided over all of the fascinating artifacts of the nation’s history, culture, and kitsch — and its $34 million budget, plus the renewal of the museum’s large West Exhibition Wing — since July 2012. What is the Smithsonian doing to help people, especially kids, become more interested in American history?
  4. David: You are always so great about sharing a fascinating fact from early American history with us. So today, what can you tell us about the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History?
