Visiting the National Museum of African American History and Culture is about to get a little easier.
From now until February, you won’t need a pass if you’re visiting the museum on a weekday. You can simply show up to the museum and enter on a first-come, first-served basis.
The museum is open from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. every day.
Weekend visitors will still need timed-entry passes, which can be obtained online. For groups of 10 people or more, the museum still requires passes even on weekdays.
Also, the museum’s Sweet Home Café is offering a 10% discount to federal employees who show their federal ID badges.
During the peak summer tourism season, walk-up entry on weekdays was only available from 1 p.m. until closing on weekdays.
The African American history museum broke attendance records when it opened in September 2016 and has proved extremely popular with visitors.
