About the African American Museum of Bucks County

Founded in 2014, the African American Museum of Bucks County (AAMBC) honors the rich legacy of the African American experience, inspiring pride in our heritage, and sharing information and stories about the diverse journey of our people and our shared ancestry. AAMBC has presented educational programs and special exhibits to thousands of men, women, and students of all ages – in Bucks County schools, libraries, senior centers, faith congregations and corporations, as well as conducting Underground Railroad tours and tours of Bucks County historic landmarks.

AAMBC provides education and perspectives on the diverse journey of African Americans through our stationary exhibits, mobile programs, and both live and virtual presentations, screenings and discussions. We are committed to bringing our treasured artifacts and stories of the hidden figures in African American history to Bucks County and beyond, thus enriching the lives of Bucks County families. Our most recent exhibit, “Building on the Dream:  From Africa to Bucks County” is currently running at the Bucks County Visitor Center in Bensalem, Pennsylvania. 

Educating children is a key tenet and goal of the Museum. We create mobile “pop-up” exhibits and virtual assembly programs for elementary and high schools. AAMBC also partners with other museums, colleges and cultural centers to house our exhibits and provide venues for our special events. Our prestigious partners include: The Pearl S. Buck International House, The Mercer Museum, The Peace Center, the Bucks County Visitor Center and The Parry Mansion.
