I didn't appreciate the part of the museum being closed because of construction. There wasn't a tour person. it was a waste of money and time.

The exhibits were very limited/few. What is here is informative, just didn't quite meet our expectations. Expected a bit more content.

Way smaller than I expected. Still an interesting museum. Got to learn and see a lot about AAs in Philly.

I didn't it represented the history of resistance and strength in the blacks Diaspora and specifically in Philadelphia the Black steel workers movement 1911 the black power movement and Black panthers chapter people like Mumia Abu-Jamal I found that on a simple google search. I felt like history catered to the black Elite not to black resistance to racism and classism that history needs space

I was expecting so much more than what was there. I am glad I had the groupon because I would have been very upset had I paid full price. I would NOT recommend this museum.

This is a Nice museum and has great exhibits. The only criticism I have is that it is kind of small. You could go through the entire museum in an hour and a half.

The artwork and the displays were educational and thought provoking. When you first walk in, the information shouts at you and forces you to listen and contemplate. There was so much history that I was not familiar with that it was overwhelming in a good way. I will certainly tell everyone to attend. They are in for a treat.

It was educational. We enjoyed our trip to the African American History Museum. Especially the room that highlights different area of blacks in Philadelphia religion, politics, etc. The interactive history section had several displays that weren't working. I love learning the history of Richard Allen and how the Mason were formed.
