The NCAAA's museum, affiliated with the Museum of Fine Arts, is the only place in New England committed exclusively to African, Caribbean and Afro-American visual arts. Its Victorian mansion in Roxbury houses diverse exhibitions, including a permanent display recreating a Nubian king's burial chamber. In the grounds outside is 'Eternal Presence', a giant sculpture of a human head that's meant to celebrate human spirituality.
