African-American Cultural & Genealogical Museum Elevator
The African American Cultural & Genealogical Society of Illinois, Inc. Museum operates out of a three-story building. The current building structure does not allow access for people with physical disabilities including the wheelchair bound and families with strollers. Our handicapped community (of children and adults) are deprived of the opportunity to visit the museum, learn about cultural diversity, and enjoy the many historical exhibits and other features experienced by much of the community and tourists throughout each year.
