  • With a name like this, I expected more about the contributions made by Africans who emigrated to the US, but most of it was a photography display about black men in suits, which really had little bear...  more »

  • What a Gem of a gallery - right on the other side of my hotel - loved this museum. I found lots of interesting things to view and the staff were very helpful

  • 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).
