What a wealth of important American History. Charlene the curator was extremely welcoming and knowledgeable. I was also impressed by her knowledge of the Carribean history of the area. I love that they have programming for the local youth as well to teach them about their history. This museum is a must see for all that come to southern Florida.

We found this small museum just a short distance from the main activities in Delray. It was worth it. It's one floor, 3 rooms, but the current exhibit of history of comic books that featured people of color was unique and outstanding. Plus the staff was welcoming and informative. No charge, but we were happy to make a donation. This place represents living history. Go see it!

S.D. Spady Cultural Heritage Museum is dedicated to discovering, collecting and sharing the African-American history and heritage of Florida. Located in the former home of the late Solomon D. Spady, the most prominent African American educator and community leader in Delray Beach, the museum is the only African American Cultural Heritage museum of its kind in Palm Beach County and a must see if in Palm Beach County.

We received a tour from the museum Director, Charlene. Thanks Charlene.

This is not just a learning experience of black history (colored), it is seeing, hearing and feeling Charlene's way of telling a story. Charlene is perhaps the best docent I have had in my past 70 years of traveling the world. She makes this tour interesting, exciting, real, knowledgeable and fun. Expect a test at the end. Do not just do the Spady, which is interesting on its own. Do do the trolley tour. 2 hours trying to grasp all of the info and history of this charming town of Delray Beach. loved it, much thanks

Stopped late on Saturday a gracious young woman invited us un to learn about Delray history of being a home for runaway slaves and native Americans before it became a popular beach resort. Located in an historic district known as 'colored town' it gives you a fuller history before the bustling beach town it is now. Very much worth visiting

Wonderful visit to see, hear and learn about a slice of American history! Edward my docent was personable, knowledgeable and informative. His insights about slavery, Jim Crow and the wars forward to the history of Florida gives you a real appreciation of Mr Spady and his contributions as an educator and symbol of hope and good things to come for blacks in Florida.
The museum is well lit, well appointed with nice select items and well written displays.
Cash and e-Donations are appreciated. Ill be back!

The tour guide seemed unprepared, driver didn't know where we were going and the guide had to keep asking us what time it was (she should have had her own watch or used her phone). Places we were taken to were not open. It was like driving around with someone who doesn't know where they are going. The bus's air conditioning was horrible and I got car sick. I would recommend that they do some extensive training for both the driver and the tour guide.

This museum documents the important African American history of this part of Delray's past. If a docent is present take that tour. A self-guided tour will also offer many insights however.
