I love black history and hope to become a history teacher, focusing on the social status of blacks and slaves during WW2. I liked this meusum, but it was very small. There was a lot of information posted, but it could have been more lively a little more interactive, and easier to read the huge amount of information.

Yes, it's small but small doesn't mean it doesn't pack a lot of knowledge. Someone stated it's odd...nothing odd about dedicating to a certain people, without this museum I had no idea blacks contributed to Idaho. Great stop.

this is a free museum and has many good articles. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. It is worth the time to see it.

This was a nice little museum we visited in the park, the exhibits were interesting, but not very interactive. Probably would have been better for older kids than our under 10 crowd.

Nice to know about the contributions of African-Americans to Idaho history, but it is admittedly far less influential than other groups, such as the Native Americans, Mormons, or even the Basques. Seems odd to have a whole (albeit tiny) museum dedicated to this one small group. Not much of a destination on its own.
