We visited the Black History Museum which is in Julia Davis Park. Outside the museum is a bench where one can take a photo with a statue of Abraham Lincoln (who is also on the bench).

I love black history and hope to become a history teacher, focusing on the social status of blacks and slaves during WW2. I liked this meusum, but it was very small. There was a lot of information posted, but it could have been more lively a little more interactive, and easier to read the huge amount of information.

This was a nice little museum we visited in the park, the exhibits were interesting, but not very interactive. Probably would have been better for older kids than our under 10 crowd.
