    Two floors were under renovation at the time of our visit but I highly recommend this stop along the tour bus route. Outstanding exhibits.

    There really wasn't a large space here , there also weren't many exhibits - I was really interested to see all this history but there wasn't much here . The two big installs were on the ground floor and were interesting but otherwise the rest of it was hit if miss. Really disappointed especially in a city like Philly and in downtown . There are other African American history museums specifically in Boston or NYC which look much more promising. Unfortunately for me this museum is a pass, really wish the expanded and had more exhibits.

    I took my son to this museum for a family fun day event. I learned so much about our rich culture and history. Even my 17 month old son had fun making a collage with some of the volunteers that were present. We will be visiting again very soon.

    It's a great family outing. Many emerging African American artists' artwork. Historic figures telling their stories. All around great spot.

    Very interactive. Small but worth the money. I love how technologically advance its exhibit is. So you push buttons and hear the history rather than having to read everything individually. Very nice. Loved it.
