What is Museum Africa?


useum Africa currently is a virtual museum whose goal is to construct a combination museum and library to house the world's largest collection of primary source documents, books and artifacts pertaining to continental Africa's history. Its primary function is to provide public access and a centralized location for the purpose of conducting research on individual African cultures.


Starting with an estimated 200,000 individual items, Museum Africa's collections are expected to grow at a tremendous pace and include items on  Sciences, Linguistics, History & Archaeology.


Museum Africa was founded in January 2005 as the Chicago Metropolitan Museum and Library of African History. Later, when Kush University was formed, the name was changed to Museum Africa.
