Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

February 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

On February 27, 2024, the African American Museum of Iowa (AAMI) will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating the completion of the multi-million dollar renovation that closed the Museum to the public for over a year. Renovations to the building included a modern and welcoming new entrance, expanded lobby, new roof, sprinkler system as well as updated features throughout. The major renovation to the Museum has been in the works since late 2019, brought about initially by the ongoing implementation of the City’s flood control system.

The ceremony will be open to the public and take place at 10AM outside of the Museum, located at 55 12th Avenue SE, Cedar Rapids, IA 52401. Statewide leaders from Cedar Rapids, Des Moines, Iowa City, Marion, Waterloo, West Des Moines, Sioux City and other cities have been invited to give remarks. The Museum belongs to the following invited chambers of commerce who will be on hand to officiate the ceremony: the Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance, the Marion Chamber of Commerce, and the West Des Moines Chamber of Commerce.
