Entries must be received by Tuesday, August 1. You will be notified of your status on Friday, August 4.
PLEASE NOTE: a timed ticket is required to enter the Museum.

The Museum does offer a small number of same-day timed entry passes. However, there is no guaranty of availability on any given day.
The National Museum of African American History and Culture opened to the public on September 24, 2016, as the 19th and newest museum of the Smithsonian Institution. Over one million visitors have visited since its opening! The Museum is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, history, and culture. It was established by Act of Congress in 2003, following decades of efforts to promote and highlight the contributions of African Americans. To date, the Museum has collected more than 36,000 artifacts and nearly 100,000 individuals have become charter members. (more info about the museum - https://nmaahc.si.edu/)
