Announcing The Object of History, the MHS Podcast


Listen to the trailer above to learn about our new podcast!


Welcome to The Object of History! The extraordinary collections of the MHS tell the story of America through millions of rare and unique documents, artifacts, and irreplaceable national treasures. Each episode of the podcast takes you on a behind the scenes tour of that vast collection. Hosts Katy Morris and Kanisorn Wongsrichanalai speak with staff experts and scholars to learn about the stories behinds our collections and gain a richer understanding of the past.

If you are someone who loves to learn about history through material objects and manuscripts, if you always wish you could hold the documents in a display case at a museum, or if you get chills thinking about how the artifact in front of you belonged to a real historical person, then this podcast is for you.

The first 5 episodes are now available to listen to on our website, or through Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, Amazon Music, or wherever you get your podcasts. Beginning January 2022, the MHS will release one new episode per month. For a sneak preview, listen to the podcast trailer above!
