MainvilleART-110HM-OL03September 22, 2019National Museum of African American History and CultureI have been tasked to either take a physical or virtual tour of a museum and then considerthe works on view, the organization, the curatorial concerns of an exhibition, and write a critique.This was hard for me at first because with me traveling the majority of my life I have had thechance to learn about so many different things about the world. Because of this, there are somany different things that interest me at this point. I have been across the world and back and themuseum that I am going to use for this paper there is absolutely nothing like it and that would bethe National Museum of African American History and Culture Events (NMAAHC).The National Museum of African American History and Culture is a Smithsonianmuseum that even though was pushed to be authorized in 1915, the museum wasn’t establisheduntil 2003. In 2006 the site was selected and in 2012 is when the construction began and wascompleted by 2016. In September of 2016, the NMAAHC had its grand opening with aceremony led by the 44th president of the United States Barack Obama. The NMAAHC islocated in the United States in the national mall of Washington D.C. The museum is ten stories(five above and five below ground) coming in at 350,000-square-foot.
