Visit the AAAMC

All visitors are welcome at the AAAMC. Come visit and learn more about how we are preserving and sharing African American Music & Culture collections.

Researchers interested in using AAAMC collections during their visit should contact us in advance. This allows our staff to prepare materials for research in advance, which means you can get more done during your visit!
