Have Your Next Event Surrounded by History & Culture!
The African American Museum in Philadelphia offers a unique setting for special events and programs with ongoing exhibitions and a convenient location within historic Philadelphia's Independence Mall and Pennsylvania Convention Center areas.
4 Galleries / 1 Great Auditorium
We offer four galleries and an auditorium / multipurpose room, all of which are available to the public for private use. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, capacity limits and rental accommodations may vary per gallery and auditorium / multipurpose room and with scheduled exhibitions.
*The multi-purpose room features a 9'X35' stage and audio and visual equipment. It can be transformed from a reception/party setting into a formal environment with seating to accommodate up to 150 people for events such as movie screenings and fashion shows. The facilities are also available for rental to members of the museum.
These spaces are ideal for corporate events, seminars, organizational meetings, weddings and a host of other events.
