African American Museum in Philadelphia


​The African American Museum in Philadelphia is the first institution built by a major United States city to house and interpret the life and work of African Americans. Our doors are open for your enjoyment and enlightenment. Visit us and experience the richness and vibrancy of African American heritage and culture come alive in four magnificent exhibition galleries filled with exciting history and fascinating art.

Involvement in film

AAMP frequently presents film as part of our programmatic and curatorial practice ranging from classics, documentaries and shorts to more experimental and obscure work.


We can only do what we do because of organisations and individuals who support our work.
Thank you everyone.
