The Cape Verdean Museum Exhibit is a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) Organization staffed entirely by volunteers. We exist and thrive due to the generous support of the many wonderful people who have given us donations small and large.
Our goal is to preserve and to celebrate. We are here for the community today and for future generations. Families, school groups and scholars have found us a one-of-a-kind resource for the special history of Cape Verdeans. We are able to tell that story because of the thoughtful gifts we have received. From family photos to ship advertisements, even the debutante ball sash and longshoreman’s hook that sit alongside gifts from the Presidents of Cape Verde, all give an important perspective on Cape Verdean history. If you have something you would like to preserve and share with the community, please Contact us. We are particularly interested in items relating to migration from the 1920s to the 1950s, such as passports and immigration documents. We are truly grateful for your support.
