This vial contained some of the first known COVID-19 vaccine doses administered in the U.S. Our @amhistorymuseum has added it to their collection. How else can the Smithsonian help us understand our current moment? Follow along for more stories on disease and public health.⤵️ https://t.co/FPtOGDgSMJ

Whale hello, did you know our @NMNH has a collection of whale earwax? Scientists can analyze the layers of these waxy time capsules to trace pollution and stress levels throughout the animal's life. https://t.co/nQJj3Exu8f https://t.co/L4ryNrQsBB

Happy Easter! Eggs like this one in our @amhistorymuseum are traditional for Easter in Poland, Russia and Ukraine. Many immigrants have brought these traditions with them to the U.S. Learn how these designs are created: https://t.co/J1pIMxV0Ir https://t.co/MLST8KIhz5

Tonight is the first night of #Passover. A. Nedby—a 10-year-old student at the Educational Alliance Art School in Manhattan—made this textile of a seder in the late 1930s. It's now in our @cooperhewitt: https://t.co/nvnVq1KBV8 https://t.co/UsS2m8oHnb

When Toshiko Takaezu was creating tall sculptures in the 1970s, other artists expressed shock that a woman could make such large artworks. This 1974 photo is included in her papers in our @ArchivesAmerArt: https://t.co/uIDGJTqqWC #5WomenArtists #BecauseOfHerStory https://t.co/pWNTQuDHxh

Happy #PeakBloom, DC! The Japanese word for cherry blossoms, sakura 桜, is derived from saku 咲, which means to bloom, or alternately to smile or laugh. The 口 in 咲 indicates an open mouth. Learn more: https://t.co/t1IWQFvfOg 🌸

During #WorldWarII, the escape and evasion maps used by servicemembers caught behind enemy lines were printed on silky cloth to ensure they wouldn't rip or dissolve in water. After the war, a woman repurposed her husband's maps into this blouse. #ArchivesYouAreHere https://t.co/f9j055IMkD
