Overview of organization: The U.S. Department of the Interior Museum will be closing on October 30th for a two-year modernization project. Throughout the project, the Museum will continue to offer public programs at other locations in the Main Interior Building on the first Wednesday of every month and Murals Tours by appointment.
Tucked away in a historic 1930s-era building is the Department of the Interior Museum. Museum exhibits highlight Interior's role in Indian affairs, public land management, wildlife programs and geologic research. Natural history specimens, nineteenth century surveying equipment, expertly crafted dioramas, videos and photographs document the agency’s changing mission from 1849 to the present.
Reservations are required to view the building’s
50 New Deal-era murals, as most are located in limited-access areas.
