The National Bonsai & Penjing Museum is a public museum located on the grounds of the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington, DC. The museum promotes the art of bonsai and penjing to visitors through masterpiece displays and educational programs while fostering intercultural friendship and understanding.

In 1976, the country of Japan 
gave a gift of 53 Bonsai trees to America for the United States Bicentennial celebration. These Bonsais can still be seen today – including our most famous bonsai, the Japanese White Pine - It survived Hiroshima.
