The new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) is set to open in Washington, D.C. this year. Created in 2003 by an Act of Congress, establishing it as part of the Smithsonian Institution. This new museum, the Smithsonian’s 19th, will be the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, art, history and culture.
Here is the winning design concept for the Museum designed by architectural team Freelon Adjaye Bond.
Recently, a video was released in anticipation of the grand opening.
