“Nice Surprise”

Griot Museum of Black History
Ranked #158 of 271 things to do in Saint Louis
Attraction details
Reviewed February 2, 2014

This is not a very big museum, but very well done. The different rooms show different aspects of African-American life throughout different parts of history. There is a continuous playing movie that shows what life was like on a slave ship coming over from Africa. It is very life like, and hard to watch at times seeing how these people were treated, but at the same time, it's captivating and you want to see the entire story. The figures of historical people were also very well done to the point where in some of the rooms, you thought the figure was an actual person. At $7.50 to get in, this place is a bargain. Allow 1 1/2-2 hours to see everything.

My family went here and we were all very impressed! We got to see the slave ships and the first black people to get a white lawyer. My Children did the scavenger hunt. We all loved the down stairs black music stars . A good learning place!

This is an excellent stop on your sightseeing trip. More and more exhibits are added over time. Time for me to go back.
