Tickets go fast for new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture

- Hundreds lined up Monday morning for their chance to get inside of the new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.

The museum opened its doors over the weekend in celebratory fashion with President Barack Obama making an impassioned speech on the National Mall.

There was some confusion Monday as to when and where visitors who were attempting to claim day-of passes needed to line up. FOX 5's Bob Barnard was at the museum and said that it appeared most who were in line attempting to get tickets received them.


- All visitors to the museum must have a Timed Entry Pass.

- Advanced Timed Entry Passes to the Museum through December are no longer available online.

- Advanced Timed Entry Passes starting for dates in January 2017 have not yet been released.

- Beginning Monday, September 26th, four (4) free Timed Entry Pass per visitor can be obtained in person, at the museum on the same-day of your visit. Passes are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis by the Visitor Services staff starting at 9:15 a.m. (Area near 14th and Constitution Ave.)
