  • This museum is rich in history and charm! Expect a humble establishment with gems throughout the museum. In fact, see if you can find the following: 1. What year were African Americans allowed to join the military? 2. How and where did the term "Buffalo Soldier come from? 3. Had the Buffalo Soldiers not existed, what effect could that have had on American society? 4. Name one Native American Tribe that were considered Buffalo Soldiers? Enjoy this piece of history many will never know!
  • I liked the tour. The staff was friendly and informative. They do a great job in showing how people of African descent have made great contributions in making our country great. Most of the information that they share will not be taught in our school systems; but it is a part of our history.
  • I loved it and so did my teens. The admission is free on Thursday afternoons from 1-5p.m.
  • Absolutely love this place, I took my nephew. This place has agreat educational system about the bravery of afriacan-Americans that oftentimes don't received the credit they deserve..staff members are courteous n helpful...I was in the military and they don't teach you about this..
  • A self guided tour. Very informative. Great place to bring the kids and anyone who is interested in learning about history. They give military and student discount just bring your ID

Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.
