The American Indian Genocide Museum is Houston’s newest museum and the only museum exclusively focusing on addressing this tragic phase of American history. The mission of the museum is to bring the truth of the historical tragedy of the annihilation of the American Indian to light through the visual art of sculpture and film. Public education programs are designed to create a memorable learning experience that results in life-changing behavior and the ability to live peaceably with others while building relationships that restore healing, hope and history. The American Indian Genocide Museum is open by appointment only.
