“Nice Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

Very good exhibits and not crowded during the week. Definitely need the museum map as it can be confusing but staff is very helpful. Enjoyed the Picasso to Worhol exhibit.

“FABULOUS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

This place is really huge and you can wander for hours through the many exhibits. The curator of the African American Museum is awesome and extremely knowledgeable. I will go back for some of the antique furnishings I missed on the last visit!

“Field trip with 4th grade”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

It was packed with kids, but the docents did an amazing job and the kids had a blast and really learned. I would love to go back on my own so I could really 'see' it!
