The National Museum of African American History and Culture is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, history, and culture. It was established by Act of Congress in 2003, following decades of efforts to promote and highlight the contributions of African Americans. To date, the Museum has collected more than 36,000 artifacts and nearly 100,000 individuals have become members. The Museum opened to the public on September 24, 2016, as the 19th and newest museum of the Smithsonian Institution.
The National Women’s History Museum (NWHM) researches, collects, and exhibits women’s social, cultural, economic, and political history in a context of world history. The Museum uses innovative and engaging means including physical and online exhibits, educational programs, and outreach efforts to communicate the breadth of women’s experiences and accomplishments to the widest possible audience. Sharing this knowledge encourages women and men, people of all classes, races and cultures to move into the future with respect, equal confidence, greater partnership, and opportunity.
