The Smithsonian Institution is a research and educational institute and museum complex located on Earth. Most of the Smithsonian's facilities are located in Washington, DC, but the Smithsonian also had facilities in New York City, Virginia, Panama, and elsewhere. The Smithsonian was initially administered by the United States of America.

Roberta Lincoln and her family visited the Smithsonian in Washington in late 2008, along with other Washington landmarks. (TOS - Star Trek: Assignment: Earth comic: "My Name Is Legion")

Among the millions of items in the Smithsonian's collections as of the late 23rd century were three 20th and early 21st century Terran space probes, recovered in deep space by Captain Anne Gauvreau of the SS Ian Shelton. The Smithsonian paid 50 kilocredits a piece for these acquisitions. (TOS novel: Prime Directive)

One of the most famous items located in the Smithsonian was the Phoenix, humanity's first warp capable vessel. Captain Jean-Luc Picard had once visited the Smithsonian and saw the Phoenix there. (TNG movie: Star Trek: First Contact)

Dr. Teeth, Jim, Kermit and Rowlf.

The Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. holds many Henson artifacts including Kermit the Frog, Bert, Ernie, and Oscar the Grouch puppets, and parts of the original Sesame Street sets.

In May 2006, an exhibit called Muppets and Mechanisms came to the Smithsonian. The exhibit, divided into three displays at the American History Museum, featured nine puppets from the original Sam and Friends show; a display of characters puppeteered by Jim Henson including Dr. Teeth, Rowlf the Dog, Kermit, and Jim; and animatronic figures and mechanisms from The Dark Crystal and Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas. Jane Henson opened the exhibit.

Also in the collection is Guy Gilchrist's artwork from The Muppets comic strip.

Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian is a film about museum artifacts at the Smithsonian coming to life. Oscar the Grouch makes a cameo in the film.
