The Wells’ Built Museum

Posted in: Feature, Home

The hotel is now the home of the Wells’ Built Museum, which opened in June 2009. The 6,000 ft. museum houses memorabilia of Orlando’s African-American community and contains displays on the Civil Rights movement in Orlando, along with some African art on loan from local collectors.

Exhibits include a 1930’s period hotel guestroom with authentic furniture, beading and decorations, the South Street Casino, the Chitlin’ circuit performance hall that was formerly located next to the hotel, artifacts from Dr. William Monroe Wells, and other elements of Orlando’s African American heritage.
