  • Had the pleasure of going on a discounted day and given the honor of meeting Co-founder Dr. Morgan. This place is a critical piece of African/African American history. It's an enlightening timepiece that spans "5,000 years through history". There are wax statues dating back to ancient Ethiopia and Egypt along with sections depicting the horrific experience of the trans Atlantic slave trade through the American experience.While choices of wax statue figures can be debated, there's no doubt that this place has done an incredible job. For my children, it was great to see the varied culture experience in America that depicted positive and difficult truths. I would recommend this place a must do for any tourist or visitor.
  • I love this museum. It's a great place to go. It would be even better if there were restaurants and/or other attractions close by to see and do. It would be nice to keep people in the area and make it an all day thing. It's kinda poor city planning as with a lot of other attractions in Baltimore. If there was more around to do and see there would definitely be way more traffic to the museum. Also... Prices could/ would hopefully be lower for entry.
