Tomorrow the newest Smithsonian Museum opens - the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC)! Though the passes for visiting in-person tomorrow were gobbled up quickly, you can still be a part of the experience …
Follow @NMAAHC all weekend-long during our Grand Opening celebration!

Don’t have a ticket to visit the museum? You can still enjoy the Freedom Sounds: A Community Celebration to honor the opening of NMAAHC.
Best wishes to NMAAHC on its grand opening and success with its goal of [being] “a place where all Americans can learn about the richness and diversity of the African American experience, what it means to their lives and how it helped us shape this nation. A place that transcends the boundaries of race and culture that divide us, and becomes a lens into a story that unites us all.”
