The Museum of African Heritage
Founded in 1985, this museum was originally called The Museum of African Art and Ethnology. However in 2001, it was renamed the Museum of African Heritage, in order to open their doors to a wider audience and begin to fully address the African experience in Guyana.
The existing collection includes items on African Art, mostly West African, from the wooden mask to the carved door of secret societies, helping to educate people about the meaning and reasons behind African art traditions. The museum also boasts more practical pieces like the brass weights used for measuring gold dust, drums, musical instruments, games and clothing within its vast collection.
The most recent donation included a wooden replica of the 1763 Monument.
