The International African American Museum

Charleston is a living museum, filled with beauty, history, and culture. And, the history is as powerful and diverse as the amazing people who live in Charleston. 

Very soon, a new venue highlighting an important part of the history of Charleston, and the history of America and beyond, will open on the Charleston Harbor. Situated adjacent to the Charleston Maritime Center, on a very historically significant piece of ground, the International African American Museum, a long-anticipated addition to the many interesting destinations of Charleston, is scheduled to be completed in 2020. 

When completed, the museum will include the Center for Family History. This will be "a one of a kind, unprecedented research center with a special focus on African American genealogy. The Center for Family History supports IAAM’s goal of becoming a unique center of learning through the development of resources and programs to help individuals and families advance their understanding of their family’s history and the role their ancestors played in shaping American history."

Below are videos that capture the essence of what this beautiful new venue will be all about.
