The Haitian Heritage Museum (HHM) is a 501c3 organization that is committed to highlighting and preserving Haiti’s rich culture and heritage globally. Our goal is to provide a cultural Mecca for Little Haiti where individuals outside of our community and within our community boundaries can come to enjoy beautiful Haitian art, historic artifacts, ethnic sounds of Haitian music, view Haitian films and enjoy a collection of Haitian literary works.
The Haitian Heritage Museum (HHM) was inspired by the need to link all Haitian people in the Diaspora together. HHM will serve as a catalyst for urban revitalization and will inspire community development and participation in Little Haiti. The development will foster the new emerging identity of Little Haiti, which will promote economic growth and urban vitality. This platform will continue to enlighten and enrich South Florida’s rich dynamics of cultural diversity in the arts.

Month of May
The Month of May is a nationally dedicated period in which special programming for and on behalf of the Haitian Community is implemented by various community groups in the U.S. HHM has celebrated MOM by providing a series of educational and cultural activities such as exhibits, performances, book signings/ lectures by Haitian American authors.
An upgrade to our existing arts and culture framework will allow students to utilize technology to engage virtually in multi- disciplinary activities such as seminars, musical presentations, visual arts, and creative writing. Both teachers and students will access digitized museum content, which includes our collections and program materials via videoconferencing, media, and virtual art galleries
Students can also experience HHM’s Arts and History via field trips. Students will be engaged during onsite educational workshops that reflect the subject matter of the current exhibitions.
