5.0 out of 5 stars Smithsonian January 25, 2010
By X. Liu
Subscription Term Name:1 year
If you enjoy reading the National Geographic, or enjoy going to museums, or like the Discovery Channel I would recommend subscribing to this magazine.

The feature articles in the Smithsonian are enlightening and well researched. The feature articles often take place internationally. Recent articles have whisked me away to Morocco, Egypt, London. I look forward to receiving the Smithsonian every month.

Pros
- Feature articles are uninterrupted by ads.
- International feature articles
- Printed on quality paper

3.0 out of 5 stars New Format Detracts May 25, 2012
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Smithsonian used to be informative and intriguing. Now it looks like any other pop culture mag. A whole issue on food?? I can go to Cuisine for that. Articles in this current issue (May) look depressingly like People and the new version of Time--slick, clever, shallow, "with it." That's not what Smithsonian was all about--it dealt with varied topics that surprised. I can get shallow by turning on the TV or watching the Huffington Post. Won't be renewing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back to being great! April 14, 2012
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Previous review from April 2012: Smithsonian Magazine used to be thick and full of intelligent articles. It's been stripped down and dumbed down. Disappointed. Will not renew.

Update Nov 2012: Glad to say that the latest issues have been very rewarding, things seemed to have turned around with the newish editor. Am pleased!

The new Smithsonian format is a disaster. I have cancelled my subscription after over 20 years of subscribing to the magazine and sending it to my relatives as Christmas presents. It used to be an eye catching, entertaining and informative read. I ranked it with National Geographic and now the history focus is lost on something that I cannot even identify. It ranks with People or our local city scape magazines. And they're free. That's it. I found no articles in the last three issues that appealed to my taste. Why would the editor remove the history emphasis particularly in a journal with the name Smithsonian?

5.0 out of 5 stars Always interesting April 12, 2011
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
We have had a subscription to the Smithsonian Magazine for over 3 years and it never disappoints. The articles are well-written, interesting, informative and varied. It's the type of magazine that you will pick up several times and read. None of the articles are exceptionally long so it's easy to enjoy even when you only have a few minutes. In addition to a variety of topics (something for everyone), the Smithsonian Magazine also includes information about the exhibits and programs that are available through the Smithsonian museum and its affiliates. If you enjoy all that the nation's capital has to offer, then you will particularly enjoy this magazine. And finally, by subscribing to it, you are supporting the museums and their on-going research. I highly recommend it.

I am totally hooked on Smithsonian. Where else can the "regular" person be introduced to what's happening in science, anthropology, medicine, etc? This magazine is worth every penny.

2.0 out of 5 stars Trying too hard to please July 25, 2013
By D. May
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I have been reading the Smithsonian for over 20 years, but it's become trendy and chic. It used to have fine articles on obscure, fascinating bits of history that you wouldn't get in school. I found it had a way of making the past real and compelling. I am not renewing my subscription, however, because that magazine has ceased to exist. It has become more of a jet-setter's travelogue or infomercial for some current event, with the occasional overlong pop-art piece. Much like all media nowadays,once profit enters the picture, it seems that quality vanishes. And that's a shame, because the Smithsonian was truly unique.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Price & Quick Verification March 14, 2010
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
This is a renewal to our current subscription and the first I have done through Amazon. This magazine is so very enjoyable but the price is generally high through Smithsonian. This price is very reasonable and we have received far quicker subscritpion verification than I expected.
