For more than 30 years, the California African American Museum has been offering an educational home to the many people dedicated to the research, preservation and interpretation of the history, art and culture of African Americans. This museum encompasses all African American contributions in the United States, with a focus on California and the west. With 28 years in its own beautiful building, complete with many recent renovations, the California African American Museum is a crucial part of the cultural landscape of California, and a must-see museum and cultural destination.
The California African American Museum features a constantly rotating schedule of exhibits, so you will want to return to visit again and again.

In an exciting collaboration, the California African American Museum is working with The Loft at Liz’s to showcase and introduce many local African American artists.
