The Pan African Heritage World Museum, also known as Pan African Heritage Museum, is an international NGO-registered project inaugurated by Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo, to provide the environment to preserve and curate the unique history, arts, culture and indigenous knowledge of Africans and people of African descent. Projected to be completed for commissioning in August 2023, the Museum’s promoters have created the Digital Version of the galleries for public viewing to start from May 5, 2022.

The Launch event, being held in collaboration with UNESCO, will be beamed worldwide from the campus of the African University College of Communications, in Accra, Ghana. Speakers expected at the function include the UNESCO Representative in Ghana, Mr. Diallo Abdourahamane, and Dr. Ibrahim Mohammed Awal, Minister of Tourism, Culture & Creative Arts. Messages are expected from Representatives of the African Union Commission, Diaspora African Forum, All-Africa Students Union, Young African Leaders Forum, and the Association of African American Museums.

“This is a unique moment for us”, says the Museum Founder and Executive Chairman Kojo Yankah; “we are making history, not just in presenting for the first time the history, culture arts and achievements of Africans and people of African descent in one museum, we are also breaking grounds in giving the world the first Digital Museum ahead of physical construction”.
Professor Molefi Kete Asante of Temple University and chairman of the Curatorial Board of the Pan African Heritage Museum, adds :”We are proud of our African heritage….this is a great event for us”.

The event will be available from the Museum’s website : www.pahmuseum.org
