‪This tiny museum is a treasure trove of the history and culture of African-Americans, both slave and free. Located at 406 Charles Street in Donaldsonville, Louisiana, its mission is to educate visitors about the history and culture of African-Americans in rural communities of southern Louisiana through collections, presentations and interpretation of art, artifacts and historic buildings. Open from 10 to 5 Wednesday through Saturday, it currently is celebrating its 25th anniversary as one of the first Louisiana museums to tell the story of African-Americans, noting their contributions to the River Road region both before and after the Civil War. Because of its significance, this museum was singled out as one of the first 26 sites included by the state in 2008 on the Louisiana African-American Heritage Trail. Founder Kathe Hambrick, noting that few of the plantations provided the histories of African-Americans in the region, provided evidence that people of African descent had a 300-year history in the region and had contributed significantly to its economy and culture. In addition, many worked on the plantations that had continued to operate into the 20th century. Hambrick also was able to relocate buildings to the site which have historic significance in area history, including the first black elementary school in Ascension Parish, the meeting house of an early African-American insurance agency and the house owned by the first African-American doctor in the parish. There also are exhibits about Louisiana's underground railroad, black inventors, jazz musicians and community and political leaders. In addition, the museum has an extensive collection of artifacts and memorabilia from plantations along the River Road.‬

‪Brenda took us on an informative, interactive tour through this museum. I grew up in the south and sadly-most of the history I learned from this museum was not in my history books. Everyone needs to learn and hear these lessons from African-American History.‬

‪The Museum has just celebrated their 25th Anniversary. The organization has found and recognize, by way of markers and seating, the burial sites of former slaves. Once located on a plantation it has now moved to the old Louisiana capital of Donaldsonville (The French were the first Europeans to colonize the area. They named the site Lafourche-des-Chitimachas). There were singers, dancers, bands, and "meetable" characters or costumed characters from times gone past at their 25th celebration. The food was delicious and plentiful. #RRAAM #RiverRoadAfricanAmericanMuseum ‬

‪In the once capital of the State is the small town of Donaldsonville, and the even smaller River Road African American Museum. This tiny museum is a treasure trove of artifacts and tools associated with the Sugar Cane Industry, Slavery and Louisiana Aquatic Life and Fishing. Many formerly enslaved giants and their legacies in the fields of Medicine, Business, Music, Arts and Politics emerged from slavery to compete and win on the world stage. Hear the stories oft-missed on the generic plantation tours. Speak with actual descendants and see, touch and feel the tools folks of color used to survive and thrive. Here are stories of success and redemption of folks who defied their plight and exceeded against the odds. A memorable and well-researched tour that leaves you wanting to return and delve more deeply into the history of the River Road Region of Louisiana. A must see and visit on a your next trip to this area of Louisiana. Simply fascinating!!!‬

‪My visit to the museum was VERY POWERFUL,inspiring and has made me very appreciative of the of the struggles and strides of my ancestors. The history of what they've been through couldn't have been more expressed than it is at the AFRICAN AMERICAN MUSEUM here in Donaldsonville.‬

‪Great little museum - the perfect size in fact. Hosted by the wonderful Miss Melanie who is so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about all the displays. We had her to ourselves and she helped us lose over an hour here. What we particularly liked was the injection of realism it brought in telling of the lives of the people who actually made the rich rich at the expense of their own terrible existences. We had been to Oak Alley in the morning and the awful existence suffered by the slaves has disappeared under the gentility of the modern appearance of this plantation. A museum such as this is an important part of this region's history. Not to be missed.‬

Ms. Melanie the Museum Asst. and Ambassador made the visit even better for she is a beautiful soul and very passionate about the history and museum. We could have stayed and visited with her all day! Highly recommend! Thank you!

‪Fascinating informative museum.
So much to learn here in its small quarters. Museum director Kathe Hambrick is a passionate font of knowledge. This museum deserves more recognition - Oprah, 60 Minutes - where are you?‬

‪There is a lot of information here, but the building is very small so there are exhibits everywhere and it made it look a bit too chaotic for me.
Entrance is $5 per person and we spent about 30 minutes here.‬
