The African American Museum of Iowa is the only statewide museum devoted to preserving African American history and culture. Our mission includes exhibiting and teaching the African American heritage of Iowa. We educate over 30,000 people each year through museum tours, traveling exhibits, research services, youth and adult education programs, and community and fundraising events. Explore our collection and exhibits that trace Iowa’s African American history from its origins to the present.
