Smithsonian Magazine is an outstanding publication. As a long time subscriber, I thoroughly enjoy the wide range of topics as well as its writing style. Truly in a class by itself!

This magazine has been my favorite source of reading since I learned of it in the early 1970s.
All the articles are worth reading and every article is positive; never depressing.

Reviewed by: Jeanne

This is my favorite magazine -- I've been subscribing for years. Every issue has a science-based article, an art-based article, and other articles of general interest; and articles are well-written but not preachy -- they don't make a reader feel stupid. I've learned so much reading Smithsonian!

The Best Bang For The Buck
Reviewed by: SF

Smithsonian is a great read. There's something for everyone. I love the breadth of interests represented. They've got something for everyone. The writing is beautiful and I feel like I've been taken on a few journeys with every issue. It also has an online version and large print for those who need that. I like the non-digital form - love having it to read when I've got down time. It's well worth the subscription.

I was given a subscription to Smithsonian and enjoyed it so much that I gave it as a gift to other friends and family. The variety of articles makes it a gift for people of varied interests. Science, history and social interests articles that are appropriate for my daughter to read with her 7 yr old son.

I love the Smithsonian because it covers arts, sciences, history, geography; just about every kind of topic. Complex math or scientific information is explained in a way anyone can understand and also enjoy reading. AND the photography and illustrations are exceptional!

A truly great magazine for life-long learners. So many good articles about a huge variety of topics in every issue, I usually end up even reading about things I didn't think I'd be interested in, and always glad I did.

I've never found an UNinteresting article in this publication in all the years I've been reading it. Even if an article title doesn't pull you in, I'll usually make myself read a few paragraphs and then ZING, I'm hooked! The content is such a breath of fresh air from most other magazines. Thanks, Smithsonian!

Magazine is very informative.

Needs Depth
Reviewed by: Rachael

I thought I would be getting articles of a deeper,
more thoroughly probing nature. They tend
to be a little "fluffy," and I don't know at this point whether I'll subscribe again.
