IdeaLabs: Amazing Collections
Getting Started

Collections are more than a rainy day activity—they can open new worlds for children. In the Smithsonian’s Kids Collecting IdeaLab, your child can explore the riches of the Smithsonian’s collections, learn how to start their very own collection, and see what kinds of things other kids collect!
