National Museum of American History Tooth Fairy Video

The National Museum of American History has unveiled a YouTube video that finally answers the age-old question, “What does the tooth fairy do with all of those teeth?” The Tooth Fairy File is a “mockumentary” aimed at parents and caregivers of young children to explain to believers what actually happens to all the teeth.

Through the video, at, accompanying blog posts at and historic information, the museum seeks to attract and inspire visitors 6 to 8 years of age.

The museum is currently renovating its west exhibition wing with new galleries on American business, democracy and culture; new spaces for the Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation; and a Hall of Music for live performances. The museum is located at 14th Street and Constitution Avenue N.W., and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (closed Dec. 25). Admission is free. Website:
