Highly commend a visit to this place. Not a long time consuming visit, but educational, enlightening and therapeutic.

Very well presented.

I visited this museum and was shocked of how they preserved the historic articles. This place takes your mind back in time.

This museum is an interactive experience in which the museum visitor is being taken as a slave from Africa to Alabama on board a small vessel. During the approximately one hour ordeal, the slave/visitor is separated from his/her friends and family, degraded, humiliated, and taunted. It's a powerful, eye-opening hour. It ends with a candid discussion of each other's thoughts, biases, and fears.
