African American Museum

The African American Museum in Philadelphia was the first museum in a major U.S. city dedicated to the culture and heritage of African Americans and the African diaspora. Since its founding in 1976, the museum has sought to give a platform to the stories of African Americans in the shaping of our nation.

The core permanent exhibition, Audacious Freedom: African Americans in Philadelphia 1776, does this through an interactive multimedia timeline and life-size video projections of trailblazers like Octavius Catto, Richard Allen and Frances Ellen Watkins Harper. Rotating exhibitions, programs, events, lectures and more keep the museum exciting!
