Iraqi Minorities in Peril
In a special nighttime display, the Museum will project onto its exterior walls photographs featuring ethnic and religious minorities in Iraq who have been targeted by the self-proclaimed Islamic State and are now living in camps for internally displaced persons not knowing when—or if—they will be able to return home. The event will begin with a program on the evening of Monday, November 9, featuring a discussion with experts who will provide background information and context for the images. In conjunction with FotoWeek DC, the projections at the Museum will run through Thursday, November 12.
The Museum is located on the National Mall, just south of Independence Avenue, SW, between 14th Street and Raoul Wallenberg Place (15th Street) in Washington, DC.
We strongly advise visitors to take the Metro (subway) to the Museum as public parking in the area is very limited.
The nearest Metro stop is Smithsonian (orange or blue line), located one block east of the Museum. Exit the station at 12th Street and Independence Avenue and walk one block west on Independence to 14th Street. Cross 14th Street and turn left; the Museum is the second building on your right.
The Museum has no public parking facility, but there is a paid parking lot located on D Street, SW, between 13th and 14th Streets, and some metered parking along Independence Avenue.
For vehicles bearing the appropriate access tags, the National Park Service has designated approximately ten accessible parking spaces at and around the Washington Monument, along Independence Avenue west of 14th Street, and at the Tidal Basin parking lot.
Please note that the Museum may be recording and photographing this event. By your presence you consent to the Museum's use of your image.
