Highly recommended Hampton University's museum to any locals who haven't been lately and a definite must for all outer town guest. Rich in displaying the history of HU's beginning. Native American and African collection is huge. Excellent fine and contemporary art collection including many original works. Exhibits do change so visit often. And it's FREE. Donations are appreciated.

I liked the spaciousness of the campus. However, parking for the convention was difficult, as the closer spaces to the events for the Ministers' Conference filled quickly. Also, leaving the parking lot was a disaster to say the least.

It was very informative. I attended the tour with my daughter and niece which are both still in high school. The tour guides were impressive and the welcoming committee was out of this world!!!

This is a beautiful campus with lots of significant history. It also provides a great educational experience for students on the undergrad, grad, and professional studies level

Liked: Everything was organized and staff members were very receptive to the needs of us--elderly parents. Disliked: standing in the long line for food. However, the food was excellent.

I stayed in the student dorms a few years ago while attending a conference. I actually enjoyed eating in the cafeteria and chatting with a few of the students. I walked around the grounds and felt that they were doing an excellent job of upkeep of the campus. Coupled with their strong academic reputation and attention to detail, I would... More

There is a lot of security, fences, and barricades. Obey all rules including speed limits. That said, this campus is filled with gorgeous buildings. What looked like a covered bus shelter was really a lovely monument to president Lincoln. I couldn't see it all in one trip so I plan to go back. The museum is free. The parking is... More
