Here at the National Museum of American History we’re embarking on a new strategic planning process. In order to do that we’re reaching out to nationwide to get the word out about this work. Our hope is that the National Museum of American History can become a vibrant and sustainable American history museum for the whole nation. In order for that to happen, we need to hear from the American people across the country so we know how to best create the path forward.
What does it mean to be a physical museum in a digital world?
What role does a history museum have in the future, let alone the National Museum of American History?
How can we be more meaningful to everyday Americans?
These are just a few of the many questions that we are grappling with and inviting our stakeholders and the public at large to participate in and help us as we seek to transform *your* museum.
We hope that you will share your voice with us and come along on this important journey.

It’s also vitally important that you share the survey out so it can reach the most people possible across the country. We would appreciate it if you could share the survey out to your audiences and on your social media with the attached image and this (or similar) text:
Help the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History by taking this brief survey to share what you’d like to see from *your* National Museum. https://s.si.edu/YourOpinionMatters
The survey is also fully available in Spanish at the link https://s.si.edu/TuOpiniónImporta
The survey closes at the end of January, though we are considering extending it for longer to meet our goals.
