I didn't have a ticket, so I arrived around 9:30 am to be in line. I was able to get in and the lines never stopped. It is a history and emotional filled museum that allows you to appreciate and learn more about African Americans...More
A museum is the sum of its parts. The content was good. Except more recent history was only briefly mentioned. Abolitionist movements in the 1700s was largely ignored. There is a lot there to see. Was good to see people sharing stories from their lives...More
