WASHINGTON (AP) — The National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. is testing a pilot program that allows individuals to enter with timed-entry passes on Wednesdays next month.
News outlets reported Wednesday that “Walk-Up Wednesdays” will allow museum officials to test a no-pass-required entry to the Smithsonian museum.
On April 4, 11, 18, and 25, individuals who walk up without timed-entry passes may enter the museum on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The museum’s founding director, Lonnie G. Bunch III, said in a statement that the goal of the pilot program is to provide greater access for the public while maintaining the safety and security of our visitors.
