The National Museum of American History cordially invites the Mercedes-Benz Club of Greater Washington to an exclusive tour of American Enterprise before Museum opening hours on Saturday, September 30. Light breakfast and coffee will be served. This event is hosted by Club members, Bob and Marilyn Haroutunian, who are members of the Smithsonian Council for American History.

American Enterprise chronicles the tumultuous interaction of capitalism and democracy that resulted in the continual remaking of American business—and American life. Visitors will be immersed in the dramatic arc of labor, power, wealth, success, and failure in America in an 8,000-square-foot space focused on the role of business and innovation from the mid-1700s to the present. Through captivating objects and engaging interactive displays, visitors can trace the country’s development from a small, dependent agricultural nation to one of the world’s most vibrant economies.
