Entry Description

The exhibitions for the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) tell a 400-year story of African American history and culture. Twelve galleries take visitors on a journey that is rooted in history, embraces community, and celebrates culture. The Museum helps all Americans see how their stories, histories and cultures are shaped and informed by global influences. It explores what it means to be an American and shares how American values like resiliency, optimism, and spirituality are reflected in African American history and culture.
