Curated and Operated by History Museum of Mobile
History Museum of Mobile is excited to announce that Clotilda: The Exhibition will open to the public on Saturday, July 8, 2023.
Since the spring of 2020, the History Museum of Mobile has been curating, constructing, and preparing to operate an exhibition at the newly-constructed Africatown Heritage House that details the stories of the 110 men, women, and children brought to Mobile aboard the Clotilda.
Called “The Landing” by the descendants of the Clotilda’s survivors, July 8th marks 163 years since their ancestors arrived on American soil, against their will. Several days of programming will highlight the stories and will include a ribbon-cutting of Africatown Heritage House. Find out more about Clotilda and Africatown Heritage House by clicking here.
Africatown Heritage House will be open from Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning July 8, 2023. The exhibition will have limited capacity and walkups, so tickets should be purchased in advance. Individual tickets will likely become available online in early summer. Scheduling for group tours and schools will begin in September 2023.
All media inquiries should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The current press kit can be found by clicking here.
