These records consist of architectural drawings of the National Museum of American History, mostly of its interior, and floor plans of exhibitions at the Museum. Some exhibition floor plans document the exhibitions Nation of Nations, Engines of Change, and Pain and Its Relief. In addition there are architectural proposals to the exhibition Land of Promise: American in the 19th Century, which never materialized. These records were maintained by Robert H. Norton, Chief of Exhibits Production, 1986-1994.
