  • The Museum interior itself is very nicely done. The exhibits are good but just not enough of them for me. I was impressed with the technological interactive wall of history. I must say that the receptionist was very warm, patient and informative. Ive gone twice already. You can cover the whole Museum in I would say anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour. Enjoy! Proud of you Richmond.
  • This place has a very modern cultural style that reflects how African Americans have changed the US. However, the cost is unacceptable when you only have two floors with not a lot of things to show. For a family of five, it can cost over thirty dollars. If you only offer two floors with not a lot of showroom it should be very inexpensive, if not free.
