  • Interesting but not enough detailed Museum on the slave trade. A long useless part on the Kings of Egypt... 1 Okay, the second film is less exciting. Vivid reproduction of ships that carried slaves, it's cold in the back. On the other hand, welcome. Not very expensive, provide for 1 h.

  • The museum is very small and dated (exhibits and films seem to be from the 80s), but the information is good. My favorite parts were the replica of the slave ship hold and the old drug store. It's worth a stop if you're in the MLK Jr national site area and have an extra hour or so, but maybe not worth going out of your way to see.
  • I love the information I received from this great place. If you really want to enjoy yourself and bring a nice companion to tag along, a great experience is awaiting your arrival. I'm a black nationalist so upon entry, my jaws dropped at how MUCH the black mass has contributed to this tyrant we call America.
  • A historical legend for African Americans. Small but abouslutely amazing. A must see.
  • A wonderful place to find the history of Sweet Auburn in the city and discover what it meant for so many people!
  • The founder, Dan Moore, Sr, and the staff are very professional and personal! Truly a must see!
