Inventing Exhibition Opening at National History Museum
On July 1, 2015, the much-anticipated “Inventing in America” exhibition opens at the Smithsonian’s American History Museum on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The exhibition features iconic items from America’s history of innovating, including Samuel F.B. Morse’s original telegraph prototype from 1837 and the workshop of Ralph Baer, inventor of the first video game. If you plan to visit the U.S. capital area this summer, you won’t want to miss this! The exhibition is part of an ongoing collaboration between the United States Patent and Trademark Office and the Smithsonian Institution to promote and inspire innovation in the United States.
