The National Museum of African American History and Culture (often abbreviated to NMAAHC) is one of the Smithsonian’s public museums on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Dedicated to telling the story of African Americans throughout history, the museum features 37,000 objects on a number of subjects including slavery, civil rights, family, and community. Opened by President Barack Obama in 2016, the museum is the newest of the Smithsonian institutions and is so busy in the peak season that visitors are required to book a time slot for their visit in advance.
