“Outstanding museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

I hadn't heard of this museum when some co-workers of a conference we were working suggested going. I'm so glad we had the time to do so. This museum is excellent. The displays are moving, informative, and tell the story of both past slavery and current slavery (yes, this exists). I recommend it, and would go again and bring others with me.

“A Piece of History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

This is a great piece of history. If you have children it's definitely a must see. They provide electronic devices w/earbuds that provide you with information about each exhibit. Sometimes they have like poetry sessions going on, dancing. It's especially lively on week-ends.

“A part of history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

A great display of artifacts, a great renewal of information and an introduction to new information.
It leaves you happy to know that we have come from the bondage of slavery from that era but we now deal with the enslavement of the 20th century. And so the struggle continues..

A must visit when in Cincinnati. There is so much information about the underground. And watch the short movies in the theaters.
