Fodor's Review

Throughout the year the Smithsonian Associates sponsor programs that offer everything from a cappella groups to Cajun zydeco bands; all events require tickets and locations vary. For an especially memorable music experience, catch a performance of the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra in residence at the National Museum of American History. Children and adults will enjoy the two IMAX theatres, at the Museum of Natural History and at the Air and Space Museum. The Smithsonian's

annual summer Folklife Festival, held on the Mall, highlights the cuisine, crafts, and day-to-day life of several different cultures.
