About Haitian Heritage Msueum
As the only museum of its kind in the United States, The Haitian Heritage Museum (HHM) was inspired by the need to link all Haitian Americans in the Diaspora together. The award-winning Haitian Heritage Museum has provided arts exhibitions, cultural arts events, and educational programming to the Miami-Dade County and South Florida community since it was founded in 2004. Located in Miami’s internationally known “Design District,” the mission of the Haitian Heritage Museum is committed to highlighting and preserving Haiti’s rich culture and heritage locally, nationally, and internationally.
By providing this platform as a linkage to Haitian Americans all over the Diaspora and educating the general public about the phenomenal contributions that the Haitian people have made to the world, we will be able to create a legacy for the future generations in South Florida, throughout the United States and abroad.
