Rural African American Museum is a museum in Opelousas that focuses on the history of African Americans living in St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, United States, from the American Civil War to the present.
The permanent exposition showcases books, objects and press clippings that pertain to the economic, religious and political history of the region. The items on display include antique bedroom furniture, kitchen utensils and farm tools, among other things.
The exposition illustrates the conditions of life of many Black sharecroppers in the late 19th and early 20th century. It was inaugurated in late 2018 and is free to tour, although its operations rely primarily on donations.
