Welcome to the Asili Museum & Institute website. Located in the inner-city neighborhood of Walnut Hills, we bring authentic African culture and heritage directly to the "Hood" by providing a range of cultural, artistic and educational services.  Our exhibits, programs, and events reconnect people of African descent with their cultural heritage through workshops that engage in African psychology, spirituality, health, and economics. The concepts and principles that our exhibits are derived from align African people with values and standards that speak to their traditional greatness. This knowledge exposes people of African descent to African standards that define character and restore culturally normal and acceptable behavior. 

The Asili Museum & Institute is a culturally friendly environment that is conducive to healing, one that has been carefully designed to be inspiring, motivating, and empowering.  It is a synergy space that nurtures African ideology, spirituality, and growth.  The Asili Museum & Institute is dedicated to reminding African people of their great past, and also to preparing them to make an even greater future for self and community.  Because our institution reflects an autonomous African perspective, it is a familiar and SAFE environment that encourages (Self-Awareness and Freedom of Expression.) 

Our purpose is to help others to recognize and restore African heritage and genealogy by introducing them in the context of Indigenous culture.
Our mission is to provide the public with affordable exhibits, lecture/demonstrations, workshops, and events that promote African heritage.
