​National Museum of African American History and Culture (GROUP RESERVATIONS - SUSPENDED)
The National Museum of African American History and Culture requires Timed Entry Passes to tour the museum.  Although tickets are free, the museum has temporarily suspended Group Reservations.  Walk-up Passes are not allowed on Saturdays and Sundays.

The Host Committee will try to obtain as many passes as possible for Saturday, June 23rd, however, due to the museum's online reservation system, we may not be able to obtain passes for everyone in attendance at our reunion.  Online passes are released monthly for specified dates and times (e.g. On October 4, 2017 the museum released passes for January 2018).

If you would like to tour the museum, I strongly encourage you to visit the museum's website: https://nmaahc.si.edu/visit/passes to obtain individual passes once they are released.

Please check their website frequently for release dates.  https://nmaahc.si.edu/
