Black History Museum & Cultural Center Of Virginia - Review

Black people are a huge part of American history and we can never know the whole story- there’s simply too much of it. During the years of the slave trade, Richmond was the main hub of receiving shipments of slaves by the dozen. This resulted in many blacks settling in Virginia after the bill of emancipation was passed by President Lincoln. The Black History Museum & Cultural Center of Virginia is an attempt to preserve the achievements of the black community in Virginia. Their permanent exhibits include documents, pictures, ancient artifacts and art work depicting the life of the African Americans.

  • This museum is small but mighty. There are so many amazing stories from black history that we did not learn in school, and many took place right here in Virginia. The permanent exhibit here is wonderful. Lots to learn from the large touchscreen in the hallway. I've also seen some wonderful rotating exhibits come through on the second floor. If you've never been here, you'll want to check it out.

  • An incredible space! Has been turned into a very unique interactive museum experience. I loved that everything on the first floor somewhat invites your direct engagement through touchscreens and exhibits with moving parts. The art galleries and rotational displays upstairs are impressive as well. I loved it.

  • The Museum was clean, organized, and the staff were friendly. The exhibits are sparse however, some are interactive, which was good for the kiddos. I am glad to have gone, learned a few things, and participated in increase of knowledge for all peoples. If you have spare time and are interested in learning some local Richmond/Virginia black history, this should be added to your list of stops.

  • Well done! Portraying Black history with a variety of displays. Easy to self-tour. Delightful greeter. Time well spent!

  • I loved it freedom Papers the original state id... Glad I went. Made me cry and smile... Maggie walker first female bank president
