“Welcoming, informative & free”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

We felt so welcomed when we visited here and 2 gentlemen at the front desks provided wonderful insight into the history. The glass collage on the 2nd floor was beautiful--they had saved original pieces of glass from the Mt. Mariah AME Church to make this. The pictures & history provided on Herbert M. Frisby was impressive. This should be an inspiration for all of us! Thank you.

“Unexpectedly Good!”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

This African American history museum is definitely worth a visit. We thought 30 minutes would be enough to get through this museum since it was small and free, but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the exhibits. We had to hurry our visit because our parking meter was up, but we will definitely stop by again during our next visit.

My husband and I literally just walked by this museum and decided to stop in. It is rich in African American history and definitely worth a stop. Very well done.

“History of the African American contributions”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

A unique experience. Exhibit well designed, special exhibits even more special. Maryland and Annapolis a split city and this tells the background, about its citizens
