  • This museum was incredible. There were so many exhibits that were set up well: we started at the top floor and worked our way down. The exhibits about music, film (showed clips of some famous shows, and sports were among our favorite. We also enjoyed learning how to step dance at one of the exhibits. We enjoyed the exhibit about war heroes who were posthumously awarded medals, as their race prevented them from receiving while alive. Overall, the entire experience took a bit over 2 hours to enjoy, though we could have easily spent another hour.
  • Being a black man I needed to come to this museum and I can tell you I was not disappointed in the slightest. From the outside admiring the building to each floor being jam packed with information, art, beauty, and overall heart and soul for the black experience it was a pleasure spending 2+ hours here. There is more to see than can be experienced in one trip and I would gladly come back time and time again. Bring yourself, your family, your friends, and everyone that you know. There is something for everyone to learn and appreciate here in the museum!
