  • As an instructor of Diversity courses for MCPS this local museum is a permanent part of our learning about African Americans. The workshops for teachers on Black Schools in Montgomery County, plus the added benefit of hearing from some of the first Principals and students back when schools were segregated really enlightened the audience's perspective on what things were like over the years. They have African artifacts, an extensive collection of artifacts from the civil war into reconstruction, a wonderful section featuring famous Black people that everyone should know, a section on local families and a section on various roles and jobs and even ways people hid people on the underground railroad. There are exhibits outside that you can visit and the docents are local residents as well as teachers, counselors and administrators in Montgomery County schools. It was interesting to know that many students outside of MoCo, even outside of Maryland came here to go to school. Make sure you bring your whole family to visit this wonderful gem of a museum!
  • Great staff was very knowledgeable and polite. Thank you.
