When & Where
Haitian Heritage Museum
The Haitian Heritage Museum (HHM) is a not for profit organization that is committed to highlighting and preserving Haiti's rich culture and heritage locally, nationally and internationally.
Our goal is to provide a cultural Mecca for Little Haiti where individuals outside of our community and within our community boundaries can come to enjoy beautiful Haitian art, historic artifacts, ethnic sounds of Haitian music, view Haitian films and enjoy a collection of Haitian Literary works.
By providing this platform as a linkage to Haitian Americans all over the Diaspora and educating the public about the phenomenal contributions that Haitian Americans made as a people, this will in turn create a legacy for the future generations of young Haitian Americans.
The Haitian Heritage Museum (HHM) was inspired by the need to link everyone in the Haitian diaspora together. HHM will serve as a catalyst for urban revitalization and will inspire community development and participation in Little Haiti. The development of HHM will foster the new merging identity of Little Haiti, which will promote economic growth and urban vitality thus furthering the enrichment South Florida's rich dynamic of cultural diversity in the arts.
