“first and only African American children's museum”
The Bronzeville Children's Museum is the first and only African American children's museum in the country. The museum was founded on August 20, 1993. Named after Bronzeville, where African Americans settled in Chicago after coming from the South. In this area, they created a booming business, cultural, political and residential center known at first as Black Metropolis and later as Bronzeville. Our philosophy of building children's minds is reinforced by a unique guided tour format that emphasizes the educational message each exhibit is designed to achieve. We believe that this format is critical to ensuring that the hands-on play experience imparts knowledge, and that our children remember what they learned and not just that they had time to play.
