Museum Exhibits
A "Work in Progress"

Think of the Museum's architectural floor plan, shape, as resembling an Ankh (the key of life).  Touring, one can learn from four main exhibits, about "Ourstory."

Although these exhibits are being developed, they are "works in progress" that provide much sustenance for cultural enrichment.   As a vital part of the culture of Cleveland, the African American Museum serves as an extension of the classroom for all people.  For students on school and camp field trips, we give interactive tour presentations to maximize their cultural and educational experience.
