Visiting the Museum
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.
All Smithsonian visitors, regardless of age, will now require a free timed-entry pass to enter the National Portrait Gallery and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Timed-entry passes are not required at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
Please refer to our Visit page for more information
Visitors can acquire timed-entry passes by reserving online or by phone at 1-800-514-3849, ext. 1.
