  • Location is right near the East side of Union Square. It is interesting that black communities all over the world had been separated by the slave trade and history to understand works of art such as paintings and sculptures from the Museum.

  • This is a great museum. we only paid 5$ each because we are students. I really enjoyed the grace Jones exhibit!
  • This place is pretty cool. Not big but a nice space, and a well curated collection. Very high production values, they obviously spent money on the place and it shows. Could use more interactive exhibits however.
  • A small but interesting 2-floor museum. They had a great photo exhibit with a short documentary video on Black Dandyism - something new to me. I learned a lot. The third floor had a Grace Jones' influences exhibit, also an interesting exhibit. Inexpensive at $10. Won't take more than 45 minutes. Check up on what's on display before going, but worth stopping by.
  • Nice special exhibitions and architecture. Awfully small, though, can see it all in under an hour.
  • Could have been MUCH better. Very friendly staff and cutting-edge layout... but the pieces fell FAR BELOW my expectations. I was expecting to see more HISTORICAL pieces, artifacts and depictions of Africa. Instead, they displayed some pretty lame art pieces. I'm no fan of "art", if I were I would have gone to an ART museum. I was somehow under the impression the displays would be from a more HISTORICAL ARTIFACTS perspective -- kinda like the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose, just on a wider "African Diaspora" scale like the museum name depicts. Oh well, other than the boring "art" pieces, everything else about the place was nice (setting, staff, cleanliness, etc).
