Ritz Theatre and Museum

829 N. Davis Street, Jacksonville, FL 32202 - United States



The Museum Gallery presents outstanding traveling fine art, historical and cultural exhibitions as well as local art and special interest exhibitions.


The museum houses a permanent exhibition of African American history in northeast Florida. A walk through the museum reminds you of the significant contributions and rich legacy of past generations. The exhibit replicates scenes of everyday life with photographs and artifacts that bring forth the essence of a past filled with love and perseverance. You can almost hear the laughter at the kitchen table and the stillness of a late summer evening as you move through the exhibit.


Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis. Smithsonian magazine encourages museum visitation, but is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of the participating museums and cultural venues, and does not subsidize museums that participate.
