Museum officials will close a small section of the National Museum of African Art and sections of the Hirshorn.
The Commons Area of the Smithsonian Castle will also close.
They will remain closed until September 30th, but the museum says no major exhibits will close.
The Smithsonian had to cut its budget more by $42 million.
