The National Jazz Museum in Harlem

The National Jazz Museum in Harlem
New York, United States

The National Jazz Museum in Harlem (NJMH), founded in 1996, keeps jazz present and alive among a broad range of audiences through outreach and education programming steeped in community, history, social justice and equity. The Museum uses jazz as a tool to provide our neighbors and artists, locally and globally, with a better understanding of our shared history, to explore the routes and roots of jazz, educate and explore what jazz has been and what it is today, to examine the continuing cultural and socio-political impact of jazz, and to entertain and transform audiences through this American-born music genre. We are a "museum for the people" and have a truth to share with artists and audiences brought together through these experiences. Each year, NJMH produces and presents nearly 100 free events in New York City, engages hundreds of jazz artists and, in 2020, reached over 85,000 viewers. NJMH is a Smithsonian Affiliate.
