When you visit, prepare to be wowed.

This morning a group of us got a behind the scenes preview of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, courtesy of NMAAHC, Instagram, and IGDC.

The museum is even more gorgeous up close, and I was wowed by the sheer volume and detail of the exhibits. Construction is still very much ongoing, but the public grand opening is next Friday, September 23.
