Documenting, Remembering and Empowering

The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center, located in Wilton Manors, has been diligently educating Broward middle and high school students on HIV prevention and community-wide efforts to reduce HIV -related stigma while increasing awareness of the ongoing epidemic in South Florida. The Museum has hosted multiple exhibits, monthly film screenings, produced the documentary Saving Grace: Confronting HIV/AIDS in the Black Community, and a monthly community dialogue series. The education program of the Museum has presented at all CDC-identified high-risk schools as well as at alternative schools and local colleges and has educated over 6,500 students. The next five-year plan includes exciting programming:

  • Innovative new exhibits from a cross section of our community like Pediatric HIV/AIDS, Medications Then and Now,
  • Digitalization of the Chronology of AIDS, the Museum's original HIV and pop culture timeline
  • Adding a new mobile exhibit
  • Exciting collaborations with other area museums
  • Expansion of the Education program in Broward County and into Palm Beach County
  • Creation of new documentaries
  • Expanding our stories of people living with HIV with a Video booth in the Museum
