We really loved this place, but it was a bit difficult to get started. Desk person said you were meant to start on second floor. Do not follow this advice if it's what you are told. It's like coming into the middle of the story! Go immediately to the third floor where you begin with the beginning of the story of slavery in the colonies and progress through reconstruction. The second floor exhibits flesh out the story and highlight many important people, places and events...but the third floor exhibits give you the complete historical context to make sense of these stories. Good films, amazing artifacts and some electrifying art! Bookstore/gift shop also a real highlight and the building itself is magnificent. Sitting in a window seeing the river with Kentucky just across the bridge is very meaningful. Don't miss it, but be sure to get the full impact by getting the whole story!
