The Smithsonian has more resources than most of us can dream of, but what really impresses me is the way in which they put their resources to work. Their blogs are fantastic. They mix in stories from interns, volunteers, donors, curators, registrars, and many other staff members to present the whole story of an institution devoted to making the world a better, more-educated place.
Case in point: this post about the evolution of design in the First Ladies exhibit, one of the most popular at the National Museum of American History. Look at those old-style cases!
