The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture will be offering “Walk-Up Weekdays” in September, allowing visitors to enter the museum on a first-come, first-serve basis during the week, according to a recent release.

The museum, which has been known to be sold out of its timed passes for months at a time, is offering the “Walk-Up” option as a way to test out no-pass entry for the future.
