The Haitian Heritage Museum is a non-profit organization committed to highlighting and preserving Haiti’s rich culture and heritage locally, nationally, and internationally. Most notably, the HHM is the only museum in the world outside of Haiti dedicated entirely to the Haitian people. Our goal is to provide a cultural Mecca for South Florida where individuals within and outside of our community can enjoy Haitian art, historic artifacts, ethnic sounds of Haitian music, Haitian films, and a collection of Haitian Literary works. By providing this experience to the public, the museum exposes the phenomenal contributions by Haitian-Americans and creates a cultural legacy for future generations.
