Educators and Group Leaders
Are you interested in planning an experience for your group? Whether you’re a school class, family reunion, fraternal society or something else entirely, we have options designed to engage you in learning about the art, history and culture of peoples of the African Diaspora.
Group Tours and Workshops
We welcome groups of all ages to our museum for docent-led or self-guided tours. Tours last approximately 45-60 minutes and provide an overview of the museum’s exhibits, including our core exhibit, Audacious Freedom: African Americans in Philadelphia 1776-1876, and temporary exhibits that change approximately twice a year. Tours are designed to encourage a deeper engagement with exhibits while exposing group members to what may be unfamiliar information about the arts, history and culture of peoples of the African Diaspora.
Storytellers, Historical Re-Enactors, Music, Dance, and More! Our Learning Through the Arts and AAMP on the Go! workshops bring history to life and arts to your group with interactive learning opportunities sure to keep participants talking.

Imagine finding a wooden trunk filled with objects, papers and clothing from another time and another life. What stories would it have to tell? With our Trailblazers to Freedom Traveling Trunks, you can dive in and explore! Representing the lives several of Philadelphia’s most interesting African Americans from the Revolutionary and Civil War Eras, and featuring video pulled from our core exhibit, Audacious Freedom: African Americans in Philadelphia 1776-1876, these trunks are a great way to uncover unknown stories from the past.
This trunk is FREE for schools within the School District of Philadelphia.
