NMAAHC : African-American Museum





« Aux USA, le projet de National Museum of African American History and Culture a débuté en 2003. Il sera inauguré par Barack Obama en septembre. Les concepteurs de ce musée veulent en faire un lieu majeur à Washington, avec plus de trois millions de visiteurs par an, juste derrière le Musée de l’Espace. Ils veulent faire entrer l’histoire des Noirs et des esclaves dans l’histoire des Etats-Unis ».

- National Museum of AfricanAmerican History and Culture

The National Museum of African American History and Culture will be a place where all Americans can learn about the richness and diversity of the African American experience, what it means to their lives and how it helped us shape this nation. A place that transcends the boundaries of race and culture that divide us, and becomes a lens into a story that unites us all.

Opening September 24, 2016, the museum is under construction on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on a five-acre tract adjacent to the Washington Monument. Until then, we invite you to visit our gallery located on the second floor of the National Museum of American History.




Le musée est à proximité du Washington Monument et de l'American History Museum
