  • it was an interesting museum. after having a voodoo tour and learning about lives of the slaves prior to this museum, it was fascinating to hear how slaves got their freedom and started their business...  more »
  • I learned about a piece of American history that I had absolutely no knowledge of. The museum was very well done, the curator presented a most interesting perspective...this museum is amazing!  more »

  • Stopped by the museum today without an appointment (they do very small group tours by scheduled appointments), and was fortunate able to get fit in since they were under capacity for the tour. I learned a lot more than what I already knew. The tour guide, Kim, is both funny and informative. The paintings and photographs displayed are beautiful, and there's nuggets of historical documents and information nicely displayed. Additionally, the house and the grounds are beautifully maintained. I'd highly recommend going if you'd like to learn more about local history, especially since the city is undergoing a lot of demographic and cultural changes.
  • Great history. Kim was amazing historian and really knew her topic. The artifacts and documents were quite interesting to view. I'd defiently recommend going there.
