On our visit we were disappointed that there wasn't more info on the amazing namesake of this museum, and at the small amount of African-American Art displayed. Great building, so-so museum.

Don't go here expecting to see anything about Harriet Tubman. If you like poor examples of african-american art, by all means, go. They are really trying, and I love to support museums, but this is not worth a long drive. I'd only suggest this if...More
