The National Museum of American History opened in 1964 and was one of the last buildings designed by the famous architecture firm McKim Mead & White.   In 2006, SOM designed a renovation of the grand central stairway, including a 5-story sky-lit atrium.   Can you tell from these photos that the interior and exterior is of the same building?
