The National Museum Of American History is closing on Monday.
It will be moved to a temporary home in the National Mall.
It’s the first museum to be closed since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.
The museum will remain open, but visitors will be guided through the exhibit galleries and on the exhibits, said David Zabriskie, the museum’s director.
The permanent museum, which will be opened next year, will be open during its closure, Zabstraie said.
The new temporary museum will have a full complement of exhibits, and there will be an exhibition on the history of landscape painting.
Zabscie said the temporary museum was chosen because of its location, proximity to the Smithsonian and its ability to bring visitors into the museum and to view the artwork.
The temporary museum is expected to open later this year.
The National Mall is a massive building in downtown Washington, a major gathering spot for visitors, artists and museums.
The Smithsonian is one of the most important and widely used institutions in the country.
It has more than 500 museums and is home to more than 10,000 artifacts.
It houses the National Museum and Botanical Garden, and it’s a hub for the country’s natural history museums.
