  • I was honesty impressed. The interactive displays kept almost every visitor engaged as they walked back in time. To be totally honest, I only went to see and honor my father's presence in the museum but left with an appreciation of so much more. Well done!
  • Great place. Enjoyed tour, outstanding information about African American history, however was not able to look at lynching room, great tour guides and discussion with staff. Spent birthday with family there. A great addition to the city's cultural environment. Also, enjoyed History Museum.
