Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture Allowing No Ticket Admission

If you’ve always wanted to visit the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., but couldn’t get tickets, here’s your chance.


During the month of September, the museum is hosting a pilot program, “Walk-Up Weekdays,” which offers open admission Monday through Friday. Visitors can show up to the museum and get in on a first-come, first-served basis. Regular operating hours are from 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m.

Since it opened on Sept. 24, 2016, the museum has had more than 4.5 million visitors. The passes have been traditionally distributed online in advance, and for same-day use, for an enhanced museum experience.

Walk-Up Weekdays is a part of the museum’s efforts to move away from the online passes.

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. To date, the museum has collected more than 36,000 artifacts and nearly 100,000 individuals have become members. An Act of Congress established the museum in 2003.
