This is an important antidote to the visits to the Mansions which emphasize how the rich lived, how they had "servants", how gracious their life was. Luckily we - my husband and a friend from London - found this museum. And the curator was fabulous. We learned so much from his erudite description of the times and the beginning of the civil rights movement in Natchez, worthy of a book. It is an absolute must see and if you are lucky enough to catch Darryl at a time when he can spend hours with you, you are in for an incredible lesson in American history that we had not found elsewhere. But even if not, there is so much to look at and read about, that you will come away enriched. The only issue is that it is sorely underfunded. So instead of writing it off as some of the reviewers have, it is worth thinking about why such a valuable museum has difficulty in getting the kind of funding it deserves.
