"Governments may execute, imprison or deport individual artists and thinkers. But the world of culture is beyond their jurisdiction. The artists whom they discourage, punish or expel, if they escape with their lives, reappear on distant landscapes."

- Daniel J. Boorstin, American Historian and 12th Librarian of the United States Congress


The American Museum of the Cuban Diaspora is a cultural institution and museum of memory, dedicated to showcasing and documenting the history, culture and contributions of the Cuban Diaspora, through the arts and humanities.

The museum's mission is to tell the story of the millions of Cubans living around the world, through the eyes of its greatest artists, thinkers, and creators. These artists, born outside or exiled from Cuba, have emerged in distant landscapes, and become some of the most influential artists of our time.

Located in the heart of Miami, just minutes from Little Havana, The Cuban aims to give those artists a home away from homeland.

Although we receive some programming support from Miami-Dade County's Department of Cultural Affairs, and generous community partners like Bank of America and The Knight Foundation, the museum will be greatly dependent on the contributions of private individuals like yourself. In fact, individual giving and membership revenue continue to be the largest source of funding for museums across the globe. Stated simply, we cannot survive without your support.

Your membership pledges and generous contributions will considerably offset the cost of staffing and operating the museum, as well as provide necessary funding for programs like:

  • visual arts exhibitions
  • concerts and recitals
  • film screenings and festivals
  • theatrical performances
  • book presentations
  • conferences and seminars
  • panel discussions and lectures
  • oral-history projects
  • educational workshops and summer camps
  • community/adult education programs

As a Charter Member, you will have priority access to our inaugural weekend festivities, including an invitation for two to our members-only inaugural celebration. You will also receive lifetime recognition for yourself or a loved one on our Charter Member roster, a limited edition "Charter Member" lapel pin, and the exclusive benefits detailed below. UPDATE: Become a member by February 14th, 2017 and you'll be automatically entered to win a Caribbean cruise for two! Stay tuned to our Facebook page for more details.

Remember, this museum is for all of us! It's a platform for our stories, a vehicle for communicating our trials and triumphs, and the poignant message we will send to a time we'll never see. Thank you for supporting us as we open the doors to your museum. We look forward to serving this community for many years to come.
