Top Black Museums

Top Black Museums are proof that African Americans have come a long way in this nation.

Since philanthropy and government funding significantly increased after 1997, many Black Museums have opened and there is more theme specialization to engage us with groundbreaking artworks, innovative cultural exhibits, historical photos, breathtaking artifacts, and dazzling new media. That curation approach reveals more exciting perspectives about the Black Experience in America.

As a result, Top Black Museums unpack the changing socioeconomic status of African Americans, how African Americans as a whole were viewed by White Americans, and how America can become a better nation for people of all creeds. Another result is the visitor experience at each venue is more insightful and deeper.

To appear on this exclusive list, a Top Black Museum must be superior in two or more categories listed below.

• Inclusion of a Major Historical Site
• Outstanding Historical Artifacts
• Excellent Art Collection
• Uniqueness of Theme
