Stately Museums


It's not everyday you get the opportunity to record in the Smithsonian Institute when it's open…let alone when it's closed! Now you don't have to. This library contains sounds from seven museums, an administrative area and the National Zoo. All recorded in M/S using the ultra-quiet Sennheiser MKH40 and MKH30, and decoded into stereo files.

This library includes sounds from:

• The Museum of Natural History
• The Museum of American History
• The Museum of Air and Space
• The Museum of the American Indian
• The Freer Gallery
• The subterranean exhibits of the Sackler Gallery
• The Museum of African Art
• The Administrative Ripley Center
• The National Zoo

All told, three and a half hours of unique museum ambiences!

The Smithsonian is quite possibly the largest network of museums in the world. It’s facilities can be found scattered throughout the Washington, DC, area, but it is the museums on the National Mall and the Zoo in Adams Morgan that attract the most visitors. Each building has its own distinctive sound; both when open and closed. None of them are ever truly empty though, and the sparse and occasional sounds of voices and activity that can be heard in the museums when they are closed to the public gives a distinctly different impression.

The Zoo provides its own unique backdrop, being a space devoted to nature in the center of urban sprawl. When was the last time you heard wolves howling amidst the sound of a city’s hum? You can here!
