Opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture
More than one thousand people attended the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Tickets to visit the museum are very hard to get, and are not available until after December 2016. Thanks to my Girl Scouts Troop, I was able to attend the museum’s opening. The architectural shape of the museum represents the headwear that many African Americans wear. The museum has seven floors, four of which have exhibits.
I visited the music center on the fourth floor, and while I was there I learned how music and arts were used to fight through struggles. The floor with the slave exhibits was so crowded that we were only allowed to see a small section of it. In my opinion, everyone should take a trip to the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
