  • This is a MUST visit for anyone visiting Alexandria. This part of history must be told and listened to! While off the beaten path, it is a past that should be taken!  more »
  • If you have time, I strongly suggest checking out the history of the first black library in Alexandra. Staff extremely cordial and welcoming. Very inexpensive  more »

  • A hidden gem! I learned a lot visiting this museum. First black library! They have a small area where you can see small artifacts and read about the history of Alexandria. They play a short video on the movement of the first black library. Also, I stayed for a lecture and that was very interesting. They have some cool things you can purchase. Overall, you may look inside and say this is a quick in an out but if you take your time to read and understand the information provided, you can easily spend some time there. It is truly a hidden gem and the director and volunteers are so nice. Will be back!
  • Quaint spot with big history. Knowledgeable and passionate staff.
