Houston Museum of African American Culture

Museum Open by Reservation

We are taking visitors by appointment only. Please reserve your appointment time by selecting Tours under the Visit tab.

The Houston Museum of African American Culture is following all the guidelines set forth by the CDC in effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, timed entry passes are required during this time. We welcome groups of all ages to our museum for self-guided tours. Group tours are available Friday and Saturday (11:00 am – 4:15 pm).  Tours last approximately 45-60 minutes and provide an overview of the museum’s exhibitions. Tours are designed to encourage a deeper engagement with exhibitions and enhance tour groups' knowledge of the arts, history and culture of the community. HMAAC policy is that there must be at least one adult, per every ten children. Tour arrivals 30 or more minutes late will not be allowed so that HMAAC staff can adhere to our tour schedule. Tours are limited to a maximum of 25 guests due to COVID-19.
