  • My family and I had the most memorable experience. We loved it.
  • Great Museum and I love it!! I am so glad that the City of Boston has an African American Museum. Brought my uncle to this museum when he was visiting from London, England and he loved it!!!
  • One of the most greatest monuments for African Americans (before the Civil War) in America.
  • It's a must see pre-war museum of African American community, filled with rich history of free African American who helped lead the change against slavery.
  • Whether you're a tourist or a local, this Museum is a MUST SEE. You'll learn so much about American history that you weren't taught in school. Be sure to drop a donation in the box by the door, and sign the guest book.
