Officials have set a new opening date of Tuesday, June 27 for the International African American Museum after experiencing complications with heating and cooling systems that led to a postponed opening announcement in December.

The multi-million dollar project is expected to feature nine core exhibition galleries, a special exhibition gallery, and a “floating” gallery, an African Ancestors Memorial Garden, 700+ artifacts, and 1,000 image and media collection pieces.

Community events are expected to be held leading up to the official opening date. More details to come.
