The National Museum of American History holds large and diverse collections related to advertising in all its forms, from print ads and puppets to radio and television. The Archives Center houses most of the museum’s print advertising, along with the archival and oral history records of advertising agencies. However, there are surprising advertising artifacts sprinkled throughout the physical collections. This March, we’ll be sharing an eclectic selection of advertising from these collections; you’ll find them listed at the bottom of this page. Check our blog
