Minnesota African American Museum and Cultural Center

Who was Dred Scott? Would the DFL exist if it weren;t for Nellie Stone Johnson? Have you used something invented by Fredrick McKinley Jones? Where would we be without the work of Roy Wilkins?

The history of African Americans in Minnesota is rich, varied and sometimes difficult. The future for African Americans in the region is bright and beautiful. The Minnesota African American Museum (MAAM) celebrates the contributions made by African Americans in Minnesota and the Midwest. MAAM educates and ensures that future generations will have the knowledge, skills and information they need to compete and succeed for many years to come.

MAAM partners with local schools to host field trips, educational workshops and performances. The historic building serves as community space in which diverse organizations can promote cross-cultural understanding. The museum is an interactive classroom, a first-class gathering space and a beacon of hope.
