  • Nice way to learn about the history of African American Dallas history. More of a gallery then a museum but still a good learning experience.  more »

  • Great place to visit, very informative and interesting. I learned a lot about the history of Dallas that surprised me. There are kiosks with video of people from the area explaining how life was for them growing up before, during and just after the civil rights movement that is something everyone should learn about. The folk art is beautiful, and there are artifacts for viewing, dug up from a cemetery that unfortunately was partially paved over with Lemmon Ave and a freeway. This history is important for everyone to know.
  • It was a nice event room for a 90 year old Birthday party.
  • Great venue to display your cultural angle. Had a blast hosting my Father's 63rd Honorary Event there. Will host another event there June 2017.
  • Went up there on a Saturday to poke around. It truly is a fun museum and history center, packed with tons of pictures and original artwork. The folks at the welcome desk were warm and inviting and helped direct us to the galleries and their locations. So may original pictures of world famous African-Americans including: Barry Gordy, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Malcom X, Dr. King, Nina Simone and tons of others. I recommend spending a few hours here and taking a look at the wonderful artifacts that celebrate African-American history in the Dallas area.
  • Interesting, black cultural history through art.

Where to stay in Dallas

Though the downtown area offers more high-end accommodations, the heaviest concentration of hotels in Dallas is in the northern part of the city. Staying in this area while on holiday allows you to choose from a range of affordable and comfortable lodgings just a short drive from the city's major attractions. Depending on the purpose of your visit, you may find it more convenient to stay close to the airport or near the city's amusement parks. A budget-friendly alternative, the northern suburbs offer decent accommodations and plenty of shops and restaurants.
