  • We spent several hours at this museum. Lots of history about the experience of African Americans through the centuries, from slavery, through Jim Crow, civil rights, up to the present. Very interestin...  more »
  • The Treaty of blacks, slavery and the segregation of blacks in the USA is part of the history of this country. This museum allows you to look back on the history of black Americans in the past. Very touching on slavery and rooms on the part of black Americans in the US military during the last war. This museum is also an important place to the former Mayor of Chicago, Arold Washington. Of course, the Museum cannot pass to the side of Barack Obama. The Museum is located in the campus of the University of Chicago near the hospital.

  • The museum is nice, clean, and informative. I think some of the exhibits are really spread out and could use more content. My son purchased a necklace from the gift store that broke right off his neck no sooner than we left. Everything else we purchased seems to still be fine. Statues were a. It expensive not sure how authentic they are. Staff was courteous and parking was a bit confusing, but ended up being on the street. We were allowed pics without the flash and they have an area set up to tell your story if you'd like about your life back during civil rights
  • Situated in the Hyde Park area of Chicago, this museum is enriched with lots of history.We went there, taking advantage of their free admission days. Free admissions are on Sundays but one can always contribute in way of donation or their gift shop. Lots of information about the contribution done by the Afro american and Cuban Americans in the history of American evolution. I would encourage families with kids to visit here. Our 2 hrs well spent.
  • My experience was just ok, not very interactive and alot of reading required for those not familiar with African American history. I was disappointed and expected to see more of what I didn't already know. The exhibit of Mayor Harold Washington was great.
  • Worth visiting whilst in Chicago! Very educational. I always recommend to people planning on visiting Chicago!
  • It was ok. I expected a lot more, but it was ok for what it was. I wouldn't recommend it for families with young kids because there were no interaction for them.
