Good pace to the information and nice mix of reading, video, sitting, standing, browsing, etc. Highly recommend for the thinking, considerate person willing to critically consider our country’s history. Depressing on a lot of levels though, to think how little distance we’ve travelled as a...More

This is the best way to learn about the causes and history of racism. It is very emotional and very well done

Have visited this historic site at least 3 times and learn more with each visit. So well laid out, making the experience more intimate as if you were there during that time. Highly recommended

interesting to see and hear the facts from our city tour guide. Smaller than we thought it would be so it doesn't take long to see but go see it anyway.

I did not grow up in this country; the visit to this museum was eye opener. Plan to spend the whole day here when you plan to visit.
