African American Civil War Museum Reviews & Ratings
A MUST SEE IF ON A TRIP TO DC! I decided to go on a weekday to avoid the crowd. I recommend booking a scheduled time on their website first to bypass the entry queue. From the accurate timeline of history (early days of slave trade to modern slavery) to the well articulated story’s and narratives, you will leave this museum with a sense of soberness, humility and joy as to how far we have come as humans. The 2 hours we spent taking in all the history definitely wasn’t enough. If you really want to get a full experience, I recommend dedicating a full day to the museum!
This is a must for everyone to visit when they visit DC. To my knowledge it is still free will offerings (no charge). To get a full understanding of what salves were promised and what they received along with where we are today. The staff there is very informed of the facts of what happened during that time. Do to the vast confusion and how American History is spoken about this is where the source resides. I would recommend this to anyone who wants the truth of our American History family or friends alike.
Interesting. A small place that provides information on African american soldiers. Hard to spot if you don't know where you are going. Did the self guided tour which did not take long but I found out into that I was looking for
I have been here twice with my students on field trips. I love the presentation given, the introduction video, and the content in the museum itself. It is small, but filled with information and the staff is so accommodating! We will definitely be back next year!
It is history that needs to be taught. Please take your children and grandchildren, folks it's not a race thing it's just history that's not being accounted for. Those that will not remember history are bound to repeat it.
