The Smithsonian is coming to Austin.
Tuesday, the city's Parks and Recreation Department announced it will be an official affiliate of the famous Washington D.C. museum.
The partnership is the first of its kind for a municipal parks system.
The affiliation allows Smithsonian institution artifacts and exhibits to be brought into communities by being in display at museums around Austin.
