Group Visits

The National Museum of African American History and Culture is temporarily closed to support the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, timed entry passes are not available during this time. We look forward to announcing the distribution of timed entry passes once the museum reopens.

As a reminder, once the museum reopens, individuals and groups of 75 or less may use your existing pass to visit the museum any day, except on federal holidays, weekends in July, Thanksgiving and the day after Thanksgiving. The museum will contact groups of 76 or more with additional information and instructions to reschedule their visits. For the most up to date information, visit

In the meantime, we invite you to visit to explore our virtual exhibitions, online collections and educational resources.

If you have questions, please send an email to We look forward to greeting you once the museum reopens.

Thank you for your patience.
