Dear Charter Members and friends,
For those of you who may not know, we have a Welcome Center located at the corner of 14th street and Constitution Avenue NW!

It is beautifully designed space displaying panels about the museum which include a statement from our director Lonnie Bunch, information about the design and collections, and information on future exhibitions and programs. In the middle of the Welcome Center there is a scaled down model of the museum and the space it will occupy on the National Mall.

You will also see a media presentation about our February 2012 ground breaking ceremony and a short public service announcement.
Visitors will be able to sign up to become a Charter Member, and engage in a fun audience evaluation game on two interactive computer kiosks. You can even check out our construction progress through a window that looks out upon the construction site! Highly trained volunteers will be onsite to greet Charter Members and visitors, give a brief tour of the space, and answer any questions.

The hours of operation are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 10:00 AM- 2:00 PM, and on Wednesday from 1:00- 4:00 PM.

In addition to the Welcome Center, our current exhibition, Changing America: The Emancipation Proclamation, 1863 and The March on Washington, 1963 is on view through September 7, 2014 across the street at the American History museum.

The exhibition explores two events that changed the course of the nation—the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation and the 1963 March on Washington.

Separated by 100 years, they are linked together in a larger story of freedom and the American experience.
Sincerely,
Edison R. Wato, Jr.
Membership Program Manager
