According to James Heaton, museums are unintentional racisits because they are stuck at a 90% white attendance, despite that whites are only 66% of the U.S. population.  During his studies he explained how his interviewees did not feel comfortable going to museums because how stereotypes or their children misbehaving. Another point that was brought up is that more people are willing to go if there was more appealing things for them.  Now as for the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, if the center wants to inspire the world, it needs to appeal to everyone. It is not doing its job correctly.
