The Natural History Building, known today as the National Museum of Natural History, was the second building constructed on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to house the growing collections of the Smithsonian Institution. It first opened to the public in 1910 and today is the most visited natural history museum in the world.

This guidebook to the massive building was published in 1925 and includes three fold-out floor plans and text descriptions of the principal exhibits. Of notable interest is the temporary display of World War I artifacts acquired in 1918.

The museum has a long history of unexplained phenomena, and private ghost tours are offered to explore the more haunted aspects of the collections.
