  • Small museum that does a great job introducing the long and continuing journey for African American civil rights in Maryland. There is a beautiful stained glass created from broken pieces of original stained glass from the church building there that was the start of the museum. The video telling the history of how the church eventually became the museum is interesting but long and difficult to hear at times. The staff we met were very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Recommended!
  • Staff were very welcoming and informative and we were really moved during our visit to this museum. Especially liked the audio available for some of the exhibits.
  • Very nice museum. Nicely laid out. Lots of information
  • Wonderful small museum in a great place in Annapolis old town. Great staff and volunteers, too.
  • Very educational, staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable
