  • This museum is tiny. I really expected more about African Americans in the US and other parts of the former new World. Interesting paintings depicting African royal family. Best and perhaps only truly...  more »
  • I visit this museum by mistake because it is next to the Museum of modern art. It is a small museum where there is nothing interesting to see. You visit 10 minutes do not lose time to visit there is so much to see in San Francisco.je you recommend to visit this Museum

  • Is small in area but large in history. On 18 January of each year is celebrated African heritage, therefore the entrance is free, including a live concert and a special exhibition of art, in addition to the regular. It also has a small sale of souvenirs, very artistic space by the way.

  • 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).
