This museum explore the South's growth post Civil War. The exhibits were very informative. The special exhibit addressing urban/police violence was well done and thought provoking. This is not a museum for small children wanting fun things to do.

All humanity need to see this museum. As you meander the exhibits you travel through time to today: to the continued enslavement of people of color. I brought 3 of my sons, 13, 11, 9 and we were all moved to tears. Their civil rights...More

This museum has a very nice collection of pieces from early Southern culture on the first floor. However, don't forget to go upstairs. Currently there is a display dealing with criminalization and shooting of those of color with special emphasis on the shooting that occurred...More
