DuSable Museum Of African American History Reviews & Ratings

  • Really enjoyed this museum. Lots of history dedicated to the African American culture of Chicago. The augmented reality Harold Washington exhibit was really cool and the app that goes with it is a must use.

  • Always love going here because I can always find out something new or of interest about Afro Americans even before we were considered Americans not humans for that matter. Enjoy the arts and crafts and the entertainment

  • It is a pretty decent size but not huge. It is very informative and interesting. Just don't go into the park, especially alone or at dark. 4 solid stars, plus an extra half star for being free on Tuesdays!

  • I don't know why I anticipated that the Museum would be so much larger and grander. Nonetheless it's packed with history though I couldn't spend as much time with materials as I wanted due to the two large groups (one was mine) visiting at the same time. I especially enjoyed the Chicago Black Panthers artifacts on view. Disappointed by the exhibit under construction.

  • This is a fantastic museum. I would have likely given it 5 stars, but it's under construction, so I gave it a 4. Great place to learn, celebrate accomplishments and see history from the perspective of African Americans.
