It’s only been one month since the National African-American has been opened and already tickets are sold out until March 2017.

“The National Museum Of African-American History And Culture (NMAAHC) in Washington D.C. opened as part of the Smithsonian Institute last month, and according to recent reports, it’s doing incredibly well. Initially expected to attract 7,000 visitors per day, the NMAAHC has had closer to 30,000 guests per day – selling out tickets online until March 2017.

The idea for a a national museum of this kind has been floating around since 1915, and almost happened in 1929, before being rejected by Congress. The museum was finally authorized by Congress and President Bush many years later in 2003, and was finally opened to the public on September 24, 2016, at a ceremony led by President Obama, and attended by Oprah Winfrey and Will Smith, among others…” – HNHH
