Clotilda: The Exhibition at the Africatown Heritage House
July 8 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Tickets to Africatown Heritage House, the site that will be home to “Clotilda: The Exhibition” and share the long-untold story of the last known slave ship to arrive in the United States, are now available on www.clotilda.com.
The museum will officially open to the public on Saturday, July 8. Due to space limitations, tickets for Clotilda: The Exhibition are timed and should be reserved online in advance of a visit. Tickets can be purchased up to 60 days in advance. Guests are strongly encouraged to reserve their tickets online so they’re ensured a time slot to view the exhibit on their preferred day.
Effective July 8, Africatown Heritage House will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Everyone – including those with free admission – must hold a timed ticket.
Please be aware that Saturday, July 8 is also “Africatown Community Day,” and large crowds are expected. Streets will be blocked and parking will be off-site, though shuttles will be available. Everyone is welcome to join the celebration outside at Africatown Heritage House, but only the limited number of visitors who have secured tickets for the day will be permitted inside the building.
Tickets for opening day are expected to sell out quickly. Absolutely no tickets will be sold on July 8, and there can be no admittance to the building (including for restrooms or the gift shop) without a ticket or at a time different from the one stated on a valid ticket.
