Castle of Curiosities

Have you ever wondered what stories lurk inside that large red building on the National Mall? What tales took place in its towers? What history has its edifice witnessed? Surely in its over 150-year history it has born witness to momentous events in history, but events unfolded within its walls that perhaps have been hidden by the shadows of time. It houses the only person interred on the National Mall, has been home to many a curious creature and witnessed the deaths of four people in its rooms. This Adventure peels back the years and takes you on an intimate tour of the Smithsonian Castle—sharing with you some of its curious history and stories.
