I went to this museum because it is very close to the Virginia Air and Space Museum and I was so bored there that I went to the Hampton University Museum to take a look. And that is all I did, was look. The museum, if you want to call it that, takes about 10 minutes to walk through. I do not know what is in the rest of the building because the museum only takes up the front of the first floor. There is also no photography, which I do not understand because there is nothing that is rare or priceless. The gift shop is the size of a walk in closet. It does have some interesting small carvings for a good price (under $20.00). If you have a wheelchair or stroller, be prepared to carry it up a set of stone steps to the entrance. Parking is a nightmare because you are on a college campus and there are no clear signs as to where you should park. I went pass the security station, but he did not give me a parking permit, so I just parked in a student lot behind the museum. The museum is free, which is good, because I would have been higly upset if I would have paid anything for 10 minutes worth of displays.
