National Museum of African American History and Culture opens today in Washington, DC

After over four years of construction and much anticipation, the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture will be opening its doors to the public today in Washington D.C. Designed by British-Ghanaian architect David Adjaye and Freelon Adjaye Bond/SmithGroup (a collective made up of Freelon Group , Adjaye Associates , Davis Brody Bond , and SmithGroupJJR ), the NMAAHC is situated on the last remaining space on the National Mall, and stands as a beacon of historical exploration, forward-looking education and sustainability clad in 3,600 bronze-painted aluminum panels inspired by the ironwork of African American slaves.
