The Richard Allen Cultural Center (Museum) opened its doors on July 19, 1992 - across the street from the historic Bethel Church which was part of the Underground Railroad.

The center offers a glimpse into the history of African-Americans locally and nationwide. It was created to ensure that the rich heritage of African-Americans and their profound effect on American society would not be lost. The center is dedicated to researching, collecting, preserving and disseminating the history of African-Americans. Visitors and school children can learn about the accomplishments of African-Americans as well as view memorabilia from General Colin Powell, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff--Buffalo Soldiers, uniforms, freedom papers from former slaves, photographs, items from old Bethel Church, etc.

Our mission and purpose is to educate the public about the rich history of African-Americans and their contributions to every phase of American life. Hours are Tuesday and Thursday, 1:00 p.m. -3:00 p.m.; Saturday, 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., (913) 682-8772, admission charged.
