Bronzeville Children's Museum

The Bronzeville Children's Museum is the first and only African American children's museum in the country. The museum is named after Bronzeville, where African Americans settled in Chicago after coming from the south. Every exhibit is sure to inspire children with a healthy message and can also be scheduled for a tour. They can learn about healthy eating, see the gallery of African American inventors, landmarks and famous people who came from Bronzeville, or take the “STEM” tour and see how the world is surrounded by science, technology, engineering, and math.
