Tickets are now available for the profoundly significant “Clotida: The Exhibition” at Africatown Heritage House.
Prepare to embark on a deeply moving journey as this remarkable exhibit unveils the poignant story of the last known slave ship to arrive in the US.
The official opening of the museum is on July 8, as it opens its doors to the public.
To ensure a meaningful experience, timed tickets for Clotida must be reserved online in advance, as space is limited.

This is to allow for a more intimate and contemplative experience.
It’s also important to acknowledge that July 8 is also recognized as “Africatown Community Day.”

After opening day, Africatown Heritage House will extend its warm welcome from Tuesday to Saturday, operating between 10 AM and 5 PM.
This extended schedule provides ample opportunity for visitors to immerse themselves in the rich historical narratives carefully preserved within the museum’s walls.
Please show your support, pay your respects, and deepen your understanding of the African American experience.
By visiting this exhibit, you can connect with the stories of resilience, courage, and hope that emerged from the darkest chapters of our history.
It’s a chance to confront the painful realities of the past and gain an appreciation for the ongoing struggle for equality.
