The Black Panther’s hero costume worn by Chadwick Boseman will go on display for the first time during the inaugural Smithsonian African American Film Festival’s “Night at the Museum” celebration Thursday October 25, 2018.

The Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture has acquired several objects from the film Black Panther, including the costume worn by actor Chadwick Boseman, 24 high-resolution production photographs, and a shooting script signed by co-writer and director Ryan Coogler.

The objects were acquired when the museum’s Earl W. & Amanda Stafford Center for African American Media Arts hosted a public screening of the film in February 2018.

Tickets to the festival and “Night at the Museum” can be purchased at http://aafilmfest.si.edu
