Join us during Civic Season for a special Citizenship Ceremony.
The History Center and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will welcome more than 15 new U.S. citizens during a special Citizenship Ceremony in the museum’s Great Hall. Families and guests will watch as immigrants become American citizens as part of this pivotal milestone in the naturalization process.
The Citizenship Ceremony is open to the public.
This event is part of the 2023 Civic Season, in partnership with the Made By Us national coalition of museums. The Fourth of July commemorates the moment a new nation was born, based on ideals that each generation since has worked to bring to life: freedom, equality, justice, and opportunity. Juneteenth, celebrated just a few weeks earlier, reminds us of the struggles and hard-won victories in our ongoing journey to form a “more perfect union.” Civic Season unites our oldest federal holiday with our newest, mobilizing a movement to understand our past and shape our future.

The History Center’s America 101 initiative empowers citizens to know and act on the promise of the country’s founders, enabling people today to write the next chapter of our democracy. The museum engages visitors through public programs, special exhibitions, digital learning tools, and educational curriculum. It hosts the award-winning “Be the Change: 9th Grade Civics Summit” program, U.S. naturalization ceremonies, American flag folding events, and other forums to discuss issues such as civics, government, immigration, and history.
