You can renew your membership here: https://dc.alumni.columbia.edu/contributing_member
We will meet in front of the museum between 1:30-1:45 PM, and we’ll start together in the Heritage Hall entry area for a museum overview from Penn alumna and NMAAHC docent Janice Ferebee. We’ll then have until closing (5:30pm) to explore the museum. We are working to secure one or two more docents in the hopes that we’ll be able to offer everyone a guided tour. We will send out a more detailed email to all registrants as we get closer to the event.
The museum is located on the National Mall at the corner of Constitution Avenue and 14th Street, made easy to remember by this quote from Lonnie G. Bunch III, NMAAHC’s founding Director and now Secretary of the entire Smithsonian Institution: “on Constitution between the 14th and 15th Amendments.”
We look forward to learning and reflecting together at this newest Smithsonian window on America. Check out https://nmaahc.si.edu/about/museum for more information about the museum, and reserve your tickets before we fill up!
Ticket sales end on January 10th!
