  • This monument is very powerful. Make sure you check out the visitor center. There is a museum inside that is well worth the visit. They show a video in a small theater that brought some tears to my eyes.
  • My "Black New York" professor Dionne Bennett treated the class to a field trip to the African Burial Ground because it aligned with the class's coursework. As college students we were ecstatic to go on a field trip because it's uncommon for students our age to be taken off campus to learn. On the day of our field trip we all met up at the museum , which can be a bit difficult to find because of the many buildings in the vicinity. However, after finding the site and entering the building, this museum left me speechless for quite a bit of time . Although small the museum was beautifully, yet gracefully designed. I was not prepared for the amount of knowledge that was provided to me , and at times some of the new information became overwhelming. Without giving too much away , I would say that if you are in the area do yourself a favor and visit The African Burial Ground. The experience is unlike any other.
  • This is a beautiful monument and is a must-see for anyone who is a history buff. You'll want to carve out some time to visit the museum but also to reflect upon the monument and grounds itself.
  • More evidence of African Americans invaluable contributions that makes this country what it is. I learned a lot from this museum. Also, there are many books i have never heard of are in the bookstore. I would recommend everyone to take the opportunity to visit.
  • It was an extremely emotional experience as a black man. To learn about the Transatlantic Slave Trade is one thing--to see actual artifacts and remnants from it is an entirely different and sobering experience. I recommend it for anyone trying to envision what it was like.
