WASHINGTON, D.C. — Big changes to timed passes for the National Museum of African-American History and Culture are coming Dec. 19.

The biggest change is that the museum will no longer distribute their same-day, in-person passes at 9:15 a.m. The other changes are:

  • Same-day, online, timed passes will be available only through the museum’s website, beginning at 6:30 a.m. daily.
  • A limited number of walk-up passes will be available starting at 1 p.m. on weekdays.
  • No walk-up passes will be available on weekends due to high visitation.
  • Non-commercial groups of 10 or more will be able to schedule their visit up to one year in advance through the museum website.
