THE UNIVERSAL HIP HOP MUSEUM
Recognize.

We are the official museum of Hip Hop. Founded by Hip Hop pioneers, and chartered by the New York State Department of Education Board of Regents, to preserve, showcase and celebrate the culture’s past, present and future. Check us out in 2022 at the Bronx Point when our doors officially open. Stay connected to our progress on social media and sign up for our monthly newsletter to get the latest news and updates from the UHHM Team.

THE EVOLUTION

“The global evolution of hip hop was first fueled by a thirst for peace, unity and funspirited rap battles and break dance competitions in parks, recreation centers, local clubs. As the culture spread beyond the borders of the South Bronx into lower Manhattan’s night club scene, it began to develop stronger messages which shed light on social issues of rebellion, racism, urban strife, social injustice and economic inequality of urban communities.”

The fashion, poetry, stories, images, music, innovative dance styles and street art was now popular in suburbs and rural communities across the country. The pop appeal of hip hop quickly spread nationwide. The UHHM’s immersive experience will recapture the culture’s glorious past and allow the world to step into hip hop’s future.

The virtual museum works seamlessly on all media devices so that patrons can experience the galleries and exhibits at anytime and from anywhere.

The UHHM is where hip hop culture lives and thrives.
