However, we felt a bit rushed through some areas and would have preferred to have a casual stroll through to... More

We visited the Natchez Museum of African American History as we wanted to get "the other side" to the slave history we were getting from touring the antebellum homes. It is a small museum that is rich in material providing information on African American history during the slave trade era, before and after the civil war and the human rights... More

Take the time to stop and enjoy the exhibits of this little museum, there is some very interesting information there. It is a modest display and in contrast to all the magnificent mansions around the area, but an emotional and touching experience, the guide was definitely invaluable and explained about Americas darkest history.

This is a very small museum with a big heart. When we arrived we caught a quite unique monologue performed by a very talented young man telling a story of slavery.When we departed the same young man with a group of remarkable musicians lamented the story musically. The materials were quite fabulous. I was moved.
