NMAAHC To Offer Walk-Up Wednesdays In April

The National Museum of African American History and Culture has announced they will offer visitors entry without having reserved passes for each Wednesday in April. Timed-entry passes will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Smithsonian museum said “Walk-Up Wednesdays” is a pilot program to test no-pass entry.

“Walk-Up Wednesdays in April will help us to determine how to manage visitor demand,” said Lonnie G. Bunch III, the museum’s founding director. “We are honored and humbled to have struck such a chord with our visitors. They stay an average of four-and-a-half hours on weekdays. We don’t want to disappoint our visitors by reaching capacity and having them wait in long lines for space to become available inside the galleries. The goal of this pilot program is to provide greater access for the public while maintaining the safety and security of our visitors,” NBCWashington.com reports.

Advance timed-entry pass holders may enter according to the time stated on their passes. Same-day online passes will not be issued on Wednesdays for the month of April.

The museum will continue to require advance timed passes for groups of 10 plus and all groups are required to present passes to gain entry.
