  • This is an important landmark within Iowa for better understanding its history of African American life and contributions. While not a large museum, it has a design that is highly conducive to reflection and offers a wealth of historical stories that need to be heard. It is also a great place to take families, as children need to be thoughtfully educated not only about African American oppression, but also the achievements and inherent value that its people have and do offer to society.
  • The staff were polite and knowledgeable. I think this museum was a great representation of African American history in Iowa and also the United States. Well worth the time!
