Nice museum as a whole but I went there to see the Bessie smith exhibit for which the entire building is named. Though alot about bessie smith was interesting there just wasnt enough there about her. 3 percent bessie smith adn 97 percent african american heritage, nothing wrong with that at all but it IS in the BESSIE SMITH HALL...
