The National Zoo and Air and Space’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center already saw reopenings earlier this summer, but now we’ve got a few more to look forward to; the National Museum of African American History and Culture, National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian American Art Museum and Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum are set to reopen on Friday, the first time since March.

There will, of course, be new safety measures in place, and capacity (as well as hours of operation) will be reduced to keep guests and staff protected. All the normal best practices apply here, aka face coverings are required, you must practice social distancing while visiting, hand sanitizer will be made available throughout the facilities, stay home if sick, etc. You’ll also need to reserve timed-entry tickets in advance of your visit (with the exception of Renwick), so be sure to plan ahead.

NATIONAL MUSEUM OF AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY AND CULTURE

Wednesday through Sunday, 11am to 4pm except on Christmas

“All visitors, regardless of age, must have a free, timed-entry pass to enter the Museum. Visitors will be able to secure up to six passes maximum for personal use only. Passes may not be sold or transferred.”

NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY

Wednesday through Sunday, 11:30am to 7pm

“As the Smithsonian continues a gradual, phased reopening, we’re putting safety first, with new measures in place to protect everyone’s health, including new hours and timed-entry passes.”
