Although the Museum is reopening to the public on October 16, we will continue to offer digital experiences for those of you who are not quite ready to return to the Museum in person. Our Virtual NLM@Night series offers fun, engaging, and informative entertainment for adults. Each week, these events will ask audiences to imagine liberty and the impact of everyday heroes.
