The National Museum of African American History and Culture is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, history, and culture. The Museum’s nearly 40,000 objects help all Americans see how their stories, their histories, and their cultures are shaped by a people’s journey and a nation’s story. The museum, the newest museum of the Smithsonian Institution, opened to the public in September 2016 and continues to be the most popular museum on the Mall. The Museum is located on the National Mall, on the south side of Constitution Avenue, between 14th and 15th Streets NW. The Museum has no parking garage and street parking is very limited.
The nearest Metro stop is the Smithsonian Station on the Orange, Blue, and Silver lines, about 4 blocks northwest from the Mall exit.
PRICE: Tour only, $10 Members; $15 Non-members. Tour limited to 12 participants.
