The National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) will open its doors 24 September 2016.
You don’t have to wait though to start accessing some of its treasures. You can search the Smithsonian Institution Catalog right now on the term NMAAHC and have access to over 6700 images, some video recordings, and more. With time, this collection will only grow.
To access the found videos, I would suggest to just visit the NMAAHC YouTube channel to gain more direct access to these.
Do recognize that once the museum is open, many items from the Smithsonian collection will shift to NMAAHC.
You can do a search on African-American in the Smithsonian Institution Catalog and have access to over 14000 images, over 400 video recordings, over 260 finding aids, etc. I personally love to look at finding aids because they give a lot of insight into the breadth of what is available at an archive.
In your virtual tour of NMAAHC treasures, which particular one really caught your eye?
