The Wright Museum

Welcome to the world's largest institution dedicated to the African American experience! The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History opens minds and changes lives through the exploration and celebration of African American history and culture. Some of the museum’s features include:
• 125,000 square feet and seven exhibition areas devoted to African Americans and their stories
• The Children’s Discovery Room, an interactive, multimedia experience for preschool through 3rd grade students
• The Louise Lovett Wright Library and Robert L. Hurst Research Center
• "Ring of Genealogy," a 37-foot terrazzo tile creation by artist Hubert Massey surrounded by bronze nameplates of prominent African Americans
• The Ford Freedom Rotunda and its 65-foot high glass dome; this architectural wonder is two feet wider than the State Capitol dome
• The General Motors Theater, a 317 seat facility for film, live performances, lectures, and presentations
• A museum store that sells authentic African art, books, and other merchandise.
Founded in 1965 by Detroit obstetrician Dr. Charles Wright, The Wright Museum is located in the heart of Midtown Detroit's Cultural Center, next to the Michigan Science Center and one block from the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA). Key to the experience is "And Still We Rise: Our Journey Through African American History and Culture," the museum's 22,000-square foot, interactive core exhibit, which attracts and enthralls thousands of visitors per year. Thousands more enjoy a wide array of spectacular events including concerts, film screenings, lectures, performances, community health and fitness classes, and so much more! All told, The Wright serves close to a half million people per year through its exhibits, programs, websites, and annual events such as African World Festival.
