Lonnie G. Bunch III, Founding Director of the NMAAHC – a repost from 2017

Take a tour of the Museum!
Next week we will be celebrating six months of the National Museum of African American History and Culture being open and over 1,000,000 visitors have already come through our doors! If you’ve already visited the Museum, then you understand the groundbreaking significance of this remarkable institution that you helped to build. If you have not had a chance to visit, join as a Charter Member now to receive a downloadable map of the Museum experience.

Each day, thousands of visitors embark on an exhilarating exploration of the rich and complex tapestry of the African American experience…

The journey through the Museum's 11 interactive galleries mirrors the upward progress of African Americans in our country
starting 70 feet below ground on the building's lower level exploring slavery and the Jim Crow era
moving upward to African Americans' historic achievements in science, music, sports, military service, and other fields ... and ascending to modern-day challenges and triumphs.
Join today!
