Bringing Africa to Life in Baltimore

Sankofa Children's Museum of African Cultures is a privately owned children's museum in Baltimore. It was founded in 2016 in an effort to enrich and inspire Baltimore's urban community's cultural desert. Our permanent collection  of African art complements changing exhibits on a variety of African countries, ethnic groups, traditions.

Sankofa Children's Museum of African Cultures will also house an administrative office and various public gathering areas that can be used for cultural and art related events. Our goal is to create an environment where visitors are not merely spectators but active participants – a place where African culture and art comes to life.

Our Exhibits

In addition to our permanent collection, Sankofa Children's Museum of African Cultures will offer a range of ever-changing exhibits on African art. We want to keep our audience engaged and challenged to continually learn and to be enlightened.
