About the Museum

The Bahamas Museum of Junkanoo is as vibrant, exciting, participatory and creative as the Junkanoo parade itself! Visitors are invited to explore the more than 300 year journey of a festival that started in West Africa and found a new home, here in The Bahamas. A festival that has evolved from a private defiance of the dehumanizing effects of slavery, to a universal expression of community, exhilaration and renewal.

In this new self-guided Museum, Junkanoo is given the spotlight it deserves. Aimed at everybody from lifelong Junkanooers and parade sponsors to tourists, the Museum is a source of education for those who don’t know and a source of pride for those who do.

Aims and Objectives
of the Museum

The aims and objectives of the Museum are to create a home for the Junkanoo community where its knowledge is collected, stored, and disseminated through education, exhibitions and research; provide platform for artisans’ voices and works to be supported and shared; and to communicate and share Junkanoo in an engaging, interactive, and memorable manner.
