We felt so welcomed when we visited here and 2 gentlemen at the front desks provided wonderful insight into the history. The glass collage on the 2nd floor was beautiful--they had saved original pieces of glass from the Mt. Mariah AME Church to make this. The pictures & history provided on Herbert M. Frisby was impressive. This should be an... More

We had to hurry our visit because our parking meter was up, but we will definitely stop by again during our... More

My husband and I literally just walked by this museum and decided to stop in. It is rich in African American history and definitely worth a stop. Very well done.

A unique experience. Exhibit well designed, special exhibits even more special. Maryland and Annapolis a split city and this tells the background, about its citizens

Very nice museum. Good location - just a block from Church circle. Well presented exhibits. Temperature controlled. Clean bathrooms. Staff was really friendly and good humored. Places to sit if someone is tired and finished early. Elevators available.
