US National Arboretum Bonsai Collection

Page One

Established in 1976, The US National Bonsai and Penjing Museum is found in the National Arboretum in Washington DC. The museum collection started when the Nippon (Japan) Bonsai Association donated 53 bonsai to mark the American bicentennial celebrations. Over the following years, the collection has increased thanks to generous donations of important trees from countries including Japan, China and the United States. Now over 200,000 people annually visit the museum's collection of 150 trees located in three pavilion houses.
