History of MOBI

Our Mission- To Educate All about contributions by African American Innovators & to Provide Community Programs that Enrich Youth Creativity.

The Museum of Black Inventors opened February 25, 1996 in the Central West End of St.  Louis, Missouri.  Located just east of beautiful Forest Park and the Chase Park Plaza Hotel.  The Museum welcomes visitors from around the globe.

The original Gallery housed Black Inventions in the form of drawings, photographs, documentation and Replicas.  The Museum also displays innovative Improvements of inventions by African Americans.  In 1997 the “Knowledge On Wheels Traveling Exhibit” was introduced as a way to showcase Black Inventions throughout America.

The Knowledge on Wheels Traveling Exhibition has been displayed at corporations like Kraft Foods, WellsFargo, MasterCard, Citi Corp, and many more during Black History Month.   “What a way to include and support Diversity in the work place”!   We also traveled to Navy Pier in Chicago, The African World Festival in Milwaukee Wisconsin, Kansas City Black Expo, MO Black Expo (STL) University of MO Columbia, The Principal School, American Family Insurance, East St Louis Public Library and hundreds of schools, colleges, universities.

The Museum collaborates with the Other Community Organizations to host programs that serve the community.  The Museum host Annual  Fund raisers; Annual Youth Ball, Mother Daughter Fashion Show and Blog,”Camp Inventions” youth summer camp and The Entrepreneur Youth Empowerment Zone.

We are always looking to collaborate with Organizations that support our Mission.
