We have taken the challenge presented by our difficulties with the HIV / AIDS epidemic and used it to create something that is inspiring and educational. We have accomplished a lot: raising funds, getting the word out, acquiring the space, creating exhibits, and completing a core education package. Opening Day was May 15, 2014. Initially we will operate on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and will offer guided tours and the ability to tell your story on film.Guided Tours: We offer docent-guided tours of the museum which will walk you through the story of HIV throughout the world via pictures, film and written material. In addition, the AIDS Tapestry will present filmed stories from all parts of the world of those affected by HIV. Tours can accommodate groups of up to fifteen people and we suggest that you allow at least one hour to see the exhibit. We promise that you will walk away informed and even inspired.Call Ed at 954-390-0550 to schedule a group visit.
