The AAMI is currently closed to the public

Thank you for your interest in visiting the African American Museum of Iowa. The museum building is currently closed for an on-going renovation project. Learn more about the project here. We hope to re-open our building to the public in early 2024.

During the closure you can continue to engage with the AAMI in a variety of ways. Learn more about the AAMI’s offi-site and upcoming exhibits, here. The Museum will also continue to offer a variety of educational programs and traveling exhibits (learn more).

Thanks for your on-going support as the AAMI embarks on this exciting project!
