we found this museum very informative about the history of African American history. well worth a visit.
David from the museum gave us a personal tour of the museum. It was informative, relaxing and fun. We appreciated his time and attention to making sure our visit was memorable.
This is an important antidote to the visits to the Mansions which emphasize how the rich lived, how they had "servants", how gracious their life was. Luckily we - my husband and a friend from London - found this museum. And the curator was fabulous. We learned so much from his erudite description of the times and the beginning of... More
Was here for 3 days at the end of October. Never found it open. But then, found half the town either closed or out of business. Looks like this city is on it's way down fast.
Not sure what the deal is with this museum. Although hours were posted, it was not open the first time we passed by it. The second time it was and we were disappointed on what we saw. We'd hoped to see something about the slave market and the growth of cotton in the area. We had toured the homes but... More

It was an interesting, overwhelming, meaningful, tour which left me sometimes wordless.... More
The museum curator was so flexible. We arrived after hours but he just happened to be there & let us in. You can see his dedication to the museum, its not just his job. The exhibits are very interesting. The African American history is a large part of Natchez. A visit to Natchez would not be complete without a stop... More
Natchez is such an important town in America's history and no visit here should focus on only the homes and antebellum mansions without a visit to the museum to see another part of history. A very moving experience.
