Smithsonian Asks ‘What’s Your SI-Q?’

Was Dr. Seuss a wartime propagandist? What highway runs throughout the U.S. but can’t be traveled by car? What exactly is “snarge”? Answers to all of these questions and more await on Seriously Amazing, a new website from the Smithsonian Institution (SI). Part of its first ever national advertising campaign, the online initiative seeks to broaden people’s understanding of all things Smithsonian through questions intended to spark visitors’–and would-be visitors’–curiosity. And while the Hope Diamond and Dorothy’s ruby slippers get their due, the factoids span the 19 SI museums (including the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York), nine research centers and the National Zoo.
