Africa is the homeland for all of humanity. The museum provides an opportunity to learn about the culture of our shared ancestry.

Africa is the homeland for all of humanity. The museum provides an opportunity to learn about the culture of our shared ancestry. One of our focus points is educating our children about the beauty of Africa beyond the animals. Our signature program, Studio Africa needs your support today.

Studio Africa introduces fourth and fifth-grade students to the rich culture and history of Africa through hands-on projects that take place in the classroom and at the museum. By highlighting contributions of Africans in scientific, social and cultural fields, the program provides students with a comprehensive understanding of their universal heritage.

The museum brings in artists and professionals from local African immigrant communities to provide interactive and hands-on experiences.

Students explore their personal identities and experience tremendous gains in self-confidence through this valuable program.

Your donation during Giving Tuesday will go directly to this support this program.
