The new NMAAHC is nestled on the National Mall at the corner of 14th St. and Constitution Ave. It sits in the shadow of the Washington Monument, and across the green from the Smithsonian castle.

The streets in the immediate area, as well as the walkways and sidewalks on the mall, are fenced off, with the crowds behind them three people deep.

President Obama and Michelle Obama, and George W. Bush and Laura Bush took the stage at about 10:35 a.m. Programming has begun.

Some notable names to speak before President Obama:

President George W. Bush
Frmr. FL Laura Bush
Rep. John Lewis
Sec. David Skorton (head of Smithsonian)
Chief Justice Roberts
Oprah Winfrey
Will Smith
