Amherstburg Freedom Museum



Amherstburg Freedom Museum

The Amherstburg Freedom Museum is proud of the positive preservation and promotion of the “Black Thread in the Canadian Tapestry” that has truly educated and heightened awareness of the contributions and accomplishments of African Canadians.  We feel the integrity of Black Culture has been uplifted over the last four decades by the numerous heritage exhibits, stories, special events and publications covered by media, partnerships, research, and resource materials which have been compiled, catalogued and archived at our facility.

The museum, like many non-profit organizations, relies on the support of donors like you, who help keep the museum doors open so that we can continue to share our stories and educate the public about this important and often overlooked history.

We host many fundraising initiatives throughout the year, for more information about our fundraisers or how to donate or get involved please call 519-736-5433 or email us at

Why People Choose Us



The museum relies on the support of our fundraising initiatives and from donors like you to continue offering our educational programming year round for both online and in-person learning.


In partnership with the Amherstburg Community Foundation, the Amherstburg Freedom Museum presents the Freedom Achievers program that connects successful achievers with mentees at sessions where mentors can provide insight into career options and interact with mentees, in addition to a high-profile speaker series.


Your support ensures the safeguarding and preservation of our historic collection of artifacts and archival materials for generations to come.


The museum has a number of annual scholarship opportunities and encourages students of African descent to apply for these funding opportunities that are designed to support higher education for Black students in Windsor and Essex County.
