Check out his photos below, and read further for more details on how to access the museum:

Starting around 830 this morning, I'll be taking a sneak peak at the new @nmaahc and sharing right here on Instagram. Excited for the opportunity to document what's inside this amazing new museum for folks who might not be able to visit Washington soon. They say a picture is worth 1,000 words, and I hope what we're able to share on @instagram this morning helps tell both a painful and amazing part of our nation's history. #APeoplesJourney
Below are a few more photos from social media provided by Scott’s staff:
As discussed above, here’s the deal with entry tickets.
The museum implemented a timed-entry pass system to cope with the enormous interest from visitors. You can book the passes, which are free, online right here. There are six available per order.
As of Wednesday morning, the next date passes are available is Tuesday, Nov. 1. The next weekend date they are available is Sunday, Dec. 4. Good luck!
