The young man that took my two granddaughters and me on the tour was very good. The girls were in awe. It showed how many lived not only blacks. I can remember visiting my grandparents and they lived a lot like was presented. Thanks Darrell

It's hard to believe that a trip to this tiny museum could have upped New Orleans ghosts for the highlight of our trip south, but it's true. We (mom and teenagers) stopped in here on a whim and stayed for almost 2 hours. When we walked in a tall well spoken man asked if we would rather look on our... More

An enriching experience. The collection is great. The staff is very informed not only about the history, but the local culture and various sites in and around Natchez.

We visited here to learn more about African/American history and the area. Our guide was a very interesting man who spent a lot of time telling us about lots of history and the area. He mentioned 2 books which I later purchased and found them very interesting. This museum is a must visit for the area

We stopped at the museum during our recent visit. Being Canadian our knowledge of the Civil war is a bit thin but we remembered most of the Civil rights era. Our guide was knowledgable and provided alot of background to the key moments of both era's.

While visiting Natchez, my mom and I visited several houses supported by the local garden club -- and we continued to be surprised and disappointed by the lack of mention or attention paid by the tour guides to the rich African American history that supported the development of the area, and whose labor built the magnificent (and rather ostentatious) homes...

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
