Membership

Here at the DuSable Museum of African American History, where every month is Black History Month, all active members receive unlimited entry, early-bird notices of previews and special events as well as merchandise discounts.

In 1961, at a time when Black culture was overlooked by most museums and academic establishments, Dr. Margaret T. Burroughs founded the nation’s first museum devoted entirely, and specifically, to the history and culture of the African American community. Today as the longest standing independent keeper of Black America’s history, the DuSable Museum is a vital resource for all truth-seekers.

As a member of DuSable Museum, you become part of an ongoing narrative of Black Storytelling. Come explore, engage, and enjoy the museum as an insider with special privileges.

Du Something Impactful!   Du Membership at the DuSable Museum!
