The entire outside of the museum itself is an artistic expression of the man inside. Dabl's African Bead Museum is full of exotic and authentic African beads that are truly a sight to behold. The museum also features exhibitions, publications, and serves as a resource center.


At MBAD African Bead Museum- our mission is to build and organize collections of beads, beadworks, textiles, sculptures and other cultural relics which exemplify the vastness of the African people's material culture. With this focus, the museum is committed to presenting exhibitions, publications, and public programming, as well as serve as a resource center. Group tours available.
