Brief summary:
Visit the African American Museum in Philadelphia (AAMP), a revolutionary museum of its time as the first institution built by a major US city dedicated to collecting, preserving, and interpreting the life and work of African Americans and the people of the African Diaspora.

Founded in 1976 as part of the US Bicentennial celebrations, the African American Museum in Philadelphia offers a museum experience rich in the vibrancy of African American heritage and culture.

Explore the museum’s engaging exhibitions and galleries filled with the material and intellectual culture of African Americans in the Americas with three dominant themes: the African Diaspora, the Philadelphia Story (which focuses on African Americans of Philadelphia, the Delaware Valley, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania), and the Contemporary Narrative.

You’ll examine a wide range of topics important to telling the story of African Americans, including: family life, the Civil Rights movement, arts, entertainment, sports, medicine, architecture, politics, religion, law, and technology that explore the Black experience through the narrative or art, history, and culture.

The AAMP is dedicated to educating the public about African American art, history, and culture and promoting visitors to keep an ongoing dialogue about issues important to the African American community today.

In addition to the museum’s extensive permanent collection, the AAMP features an ongoing rotation of temporary exhibits that provide new takes on common themes and supplemental information to its regular collection.
