The museum and its 35,000 treasured artifacts are telling a new story about America. In what will likely be the last new building on the National Mall, the museum represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reintroduce important ideas and themes to an eager public.
From the museum director, Lonnie Bunch:
Ultimately, I trust that our visitors will draw sustenance, inspiration and a commitment from the lessons of history to make America better.
As you make your virtual journey through the interactive, and then hopefully see the stunning exhibits and architecture for yourself on the National Mall, experience the building that director Lonnie Bunch says will “Sing for all of us.”
