  • Went on a Sunday because it was free! There was only one gallery open and we weren't impressed with the art. Personal taste, I know. Perhaps when the other galleries are open it might be better.  more »
  • I enjoyed the exhibit although it is small. It focused on african and spanish art in various media formats. I enjoyed... because it gave me a sense of NYC hip hop culture, 80s...and was thought provok...  more »
  • Very interesting to visit it to learn more the black culture of NY. It has an ideal size for dedidarle between one and two hours carefully. The topics that you cover and some of the works are exciting. A Sunday morning stroll through the center of Harlem (helpful for your peace of mind that day) and we stopped at this Museum, which is also free on Sundays.

  • Really enjoyed this with artistic and thought provoking exhibits on three levels. Some but not all items make strong social commentary that should make one reflect. They told us they will close in 10 days for over a year to knock down and rebuild a larger museum facility on the same plot.
  • One of my favorite museums in New York City. I am appreciative of the exhibits that showcase African American art. I look forward to attending special events and concerts! The museum is located near public transportation . The postcard collection is interesting and free for visitors to take a postcard or two. Whenever family or friends visit I take them here.
  • Very disappointed. We arrived 13 minutes before closing ,due to subway delays, and the front desk guard sent us away and stated they were closed. I do not appreciate businesses having confirmed business hours advertised on the web yet don’t honor it. As small black business owners we have got to do better. Even after we stated we came all the way from Queens just to see the museum, we were responsed with a shoulder shrug and a insincere apology. The museum is not big and would take less than 10 minutes to view. The staff was very unreasonable.
  • Centrally located, a quick dose of art and culture without being overwhelmed. Stroll in and out and take in the rest of what Harlem has to offer.
  • Most interesting exhibition. Nice shop. There's nothing dangerous in the neighborhood.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
