This is excellent to visit if you are interested in African-American history, Maritime History, industrial history,, or have a general interest in history. I learned a lot. It is worth the admission price.

Did not get enough time to see it because for such an important historic site felt it closed too early on a weekend

We toured this museum, a lot of history to learn and it's in the inner harbor. The museum is very hands on, inexpensive, great family attraction. Lots to do while you are at the inner harbor. A must see, if you love black history.
