Smithsonian: America's Family Album
Thank you for being a part of Smithsonian history.
From vintage black and white to modern digital photography, snapshots at the Smithsonian are an indelible part of millions of family photo albums.

To celebrate our shared experience, we gathered photos from people around the country to be part of America's Family Album.

Hundreds of people uploaded thousands of images. We are happy to announce that the Smithsonian Institution Archives has committed to accessioning the uploaded images into their permanent collection. The America's Family Album exhibition is in development for possible future display.
