- Get Involved
Visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture Welcome Center to learn about our programs, exhibitions, collections, and the building design. The Center features a model of the National Mall, a video presentation, and kiosks to enroll in a museum membership or to try a quiz! And make sure to take a close-up look of the construction from a special viewing window. Trained volunteers will greet you for this self-guided experience!
For groups of 10 or more and/or if you have special needs, let us know your plans five working days prior to your visit, so that we can arrange for volunteer Information Desk Specialists to greet you and better accommodate you. American Sign Language accommodation requires two weeks advanced notice. Thank you! Welcome Center - Group Registration
