    Great museum but couldn't enjoy as much as I would have liked to because of the heat. The A/C had been broken 3 weeks due to vandalism. I hope they have insurance or can get it fixed fast. May become a strong detractor.

    This is not a very big museum, but very well done. The different rooms show different aspects of African-American life throughout different parts of history. There is a continuous playing movie that shows what life was like on a slave ship coming over from Africa. It is very life like, and hard to watch at times seeing how these people were treated, but at the same time, it's captivating and you want to see the entire story. The figures of historical people were also very well done to the point where in some of the rooms, you thought the figure was an actual person. At $7.50 to get in, this place is a bargain. Allow 1 1/2-2 hours to see everything.

    My family went here and we were all very impressed! We got to see the slave ships and the first black people to get a white lawyer. My Children did the scavenger hunt. We all loved the down stairs black music stars . A good learning place!

    Dieses Museum der Black History - mittlerweile umgetauft in The Griot Museum of Black History - bietet einen recht guten Überblick in die zum Teil düstere Geschichte der Schwarzen in Amerika. Besonders die Geschichte der Sklaverei kommt in der ersten Hälfte sehr gut zum Ausdruck, es sind viele Szenen mit menschengroßen Figuren nacherzählt. Demgegenüber kommt die Geschichte des 19. Jahrhunderts ein wenig zu kurz. Und ganz ausgespart ist die neuere Zeit, besonders die turbulenten 60er Jahre. Dafür wird aber die Rolle von Frauen besonders bei den Bildungsbemühungen und der kirchlichen Entwicklungen (viele Schwarze waren ja engagierte Christen) stark herausgestellt und gut belegt. Im Keller gibt es oft wechselnde Ausstellungen, so z.B. eine über die Geschichte der schwarzen Musik mit guten Photographien. Insgesamt eines der besseren Museen der schwarzen Geschichte in den USA. Der Besuch ist zum Verständnis auch der heutigen Situation der Schwarzen in den USA sehr hilfreich.

    This is an excellent stop on your sightseeing trip. More and more exhibits are added over time. Time for me to go back.
