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

This long overdue museum takes you on a dizzying and corrective journey through history. It would take many visits to absorb it all. But even if you only have one day to visit, just do it. The crowds are still there but, except on the...More

The walk through History was awesome it is better that the Underground Railroad Museum. So much history, and the food is southern soul at it's best! Don't leave without buying the cook book! And plan to spend at least 2 days.

I didn't see any. I'd assume people bring their own. It is easy enough to get around with them though.
