The Minnesota African American Heritage Museum and Gallery (MAAHMG) preserves, documents and highlights the achievements, contributions and experiences of African Americans in Minnesota.
This mission is carried out through exhibits, programs and events that educate and inform the public about the history, culture, and art of African Americans in Minnesota. Opened in 2018, the museum is also a community gathering place where people meet and celebrate Black history. The museum is free and accessible to all.
Did you know? The MAAHMG’s logo is the West African Adinkra symbol, Dwennimmen, which represents “ram’s horns” and means humility and strength. We chose this symbol because it represents the African American story in the United States. Despite enslavement, segregation, discrimination, and other abuses, African Americans have shown grace, perseverance, courage, resistance and resilience.
Your contributions ensure that we continue presenting enlightening exhibitions and engaging community programs. Support us as we move forward to build a sustainable future and legacy. With deep gratitude, MAAHMG Board.
