National Museum of African American History & Culture – Livestream Tour

September 19 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT

Join us for an online/virtual tour of The National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC.
Prior to Covid our in-person tours of the museum were one of our most-popular programs. We’ll start those back up again, once it’s safe to do so. Until then our livestream tour will provide people an opportunity to learn about the museum, experience its innovative design and see some of its fascinating exhibits. We’ll also provide some tips and suggestions on visiting the museum when it opens back up again.
The National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) is a Smithsonian Institution museum located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., in the United States. It was established in December 2003 and opened its permanent home in September 2016 with a ceremony led by President Barack Obama.
Early efforts to establish a federally owned museum featuring African-American history and culture can be traced to 1915, although the modern push for such an organization did not begin until the 1970s. After years of little success, a much more serious legislative push began in 1988 that led to authorization of the museum in 2003. A site was selected in 2006, construction began in 2012 and the museum completed in 2016.
The NMAAHC is the world’s largest museum dedicated to African-American history and culture. It ranked as the fourth most-visited Smithsonian museum in its first full year of operation. The museum has more than 40,000 objects in its collection, although only about 3,500 items are on display. The 350,000-square-foot (33,000 m2), 10 story building (five above and five below ground) and its exhibits have won critical praise.
