  • Although I wasn't able to do the guided tour of the Black Heritage Trail, due to the partial government shutdown, I had a wonderful time at the museum itself. The Frederick Douglass' exhibits take up two floors and is worth seeing. Michael, the guide that day, gave us a great tour of the church and school. He was extremely knowledgeable and because our group was very small (3 people), we were able to have an enhanced and up-close experience. We kind if lost track of time;) The young man at the front desk/cashier (I hate that I forgot his name) is really passionate about his work and shared a lit of his knowledge with me after the tour. If you visit Boston, go to this place!
