  • I LOVED this museum. I can not understand the negative reviews left on here at all. Whilst it is not big I managed to spend over two hours in here - they had a exhibition on the carnival tradition whi...  more »

  • Really fantastic museum. I try to come every time I'm in San Francisco because they have such great new and exciting work. They also seem to highlight some interesting performance based work. Love it.
  • The Museum of the African Diaspora is worth a visit if you're willing to linger awhile, to think, and reflect on the art. There isn't much to look at but at the same time there is a lot to look for. I appreciate how they featured a few artists and showcased a good selection of their works. It felt like there was an opportunity to get a deeper look into the mentality of the artist and to see what they value as important. I've only visited once so far, but, I feel like it may be a place worth visiting again once they change out their exhibits.
  • It gives you a peep into only a small part of the culture...especially the carnaval influenced by multiple cultures. Not recommending to someone expecting a full understanding of the complete African history/art
  • Clean but poorly stocked. Not much to see. Sad, they have such a rich history of struggle.
  • Two floors of thoughtful, well curated exhibitions relevant to both contemporary artmaking and to contemporary social dialogue.
