This museum offers fabulous educational programs for school children and for adults, and is housed in historic buildings on Boston's Beacon Hill. One of their buildings is the oldest extant black church in America, the 1806 African Meeting House, a brick building with four enormous arched windows, which was constructed almost entirely by free black artisans. It is really beautiful and inspiring. The museum is dedicated to preserving, conserving and accurately interpreting the contributions of African Americans in New England from the colonial period through the 19th century.
