    Enjoyed myself fully. There’s a lot of information that I didn’t know and was happy to learn about Philadelphia’s black community.ANY NEGATIVE FEEDBACK IS FROM PEOPLE WHO OBVIOUSLY KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY🙄. Took the double decker tour bus and got off @ the museum. Pleasant staff and very informative history. You are actually able to read everything in the museum and leave remembering at least 1 or more historical facts. Instead of skimming thru words and looking at pictures. Great introductory to the past and I commend the people who were behind putting this together. Definitely take your family and friends and support. You wont be disappointed and are certain to learn something.

    I had a great time there on my last visit. They have an exhibit that has actors broadcasted on screens. It blew me away. I recommend that anyone visiting or living in Philly take the time to come here.

    Ok this pains me to say this, but need to be honest. Walked in, grabbed our tickets, & we're able to walk through in a out 10 minutes. The museum is set up like the Smithsonian AA museum in DC. Art gallery top floor & historical items below. However there aren't much artifacts. However after visiting with staff I understand why......they are completely publicly funded not federally funded like many others. Unfortunately there are no major benefactors & has led to stagnation. So my suggestion is go to support & get history from the local staff.

    I honestly expected much more than was presented, I don't feel like it portrayed us in a great light. Pretty much falls in line with what was taught it school, and I'm pretty sure there are tons of inaccuracies in those teachings.

    There is really nothing that tells the real truth about African Americans. Which is what the museum is called. There is no African American. There is american and there is Africans. .period. museum is a bust. Not worth a penny to visit. Years ago they had authentic stuff. Was taken out due being to graphic. Seriously. It was the truth what they showed.
