Learn more about New York City Fire Museum NYC

Opened to the public in 1984, the Museum for African Art is dedicated to the arts and cultures of Africa and the African Diaspora. Since that time, it has become internationally recognized as a preeminent organizer of exhibitions and publications related to historical and contemporary African art. The Museum was located in a rented townhouse on the Upper East Side from 1984 until 1992, when it moved to rented space in the City's SoHo district. In 2002, the Museum moved to Queens, and in late 2005 it closed its gallery space there in order to focus on developing plans for a new, larger facility that it would own. In September 2007, ground was broken for a new building that will enable the long-needed expansion of the Museum's exhibitions, public programs, and educational initiatives. The new Museum for African Art will open to the public in the second half of 2012. It will be located at the corner of Fifth Avenue and East 110th Street, in New York City, where it will join Manhattan's "Museum Mile."
