This is a really worthwhile place to visit with children. Combines a cultural experience with interesting facts about peanuts and history of the South. Thoroughly recommend it.

A trip through black American history, from slave times until today. Some of the pictures are heart wrenching, a statement of mans inhumanity to man.
