The National Mall: America's Front Yard

The National Mall: America's Front Yard presents the surprising story of the Mall’s birth and evolution. Placed in very center of our nation’s capital, it is a landscape unlike any other. Lined by some of the world’s finest museums and dotted with monuments to the country’s most revered figures, the National Mall draws millions of visitors each year. Most of them have only a vague sense of the struggles involved in creating this unique space.
