The mission of Sankofa Children’s Museum of African Cultures, Inc. is to build and operate a world-class living and interactive children’s African museum in Baltimore for the benefit of the Baltimore communities and all visitors that embrace learning. From our research, this would be the first children’s museum dedicated to educating children about Africa, in the United States.
As a premier African Cultural children’s museum in the Mid-Atlantic region, Sankofa Children’s Museum of African Cultures will seek to educate, inspire, and connect children from all walks of life to discover and experience a true African odyssey.
- Provide a safe, learning environment to engage children in hands-on experiences through play, performances, classes, dance, and other interactive programs. Our goal is to empower them with knowledge so that they feel more confident, proud, and connected to a rich culture and to have more engaged lives.
- Have a positive influence on each child’s family, academic, and community life.
- Play an intricate role in reshaping a disenfranchised community culturally in Maryland and beyond, with cultural awareness and excellence.
Our aim is to tackle this project in stages, initially offering a pilot program beginning this summer and expecting to expand it dramatically within a year or two into a full-fledged children’s museum!
