Museum of Black Inventors collaborate with the St. Louis Cultural Arts Center to host programs and events open to the community year round.
Annual Summer Camp provides Music, Dance, Drama, Arts & Crafts and more for inner city youth at no cost to participating families. Many of our camp attendees would not otherwise afford to experience summer fun in such a safe, loving and creative way. Community organizations, schools, & churches provide space for camp each summer until such time as the Museum is relocated to it’s new home in progress.
