This museum is a must...

This museum is a must see. I strongly recommend a tour guide, ours-Dr. koura Gibson- was outstanding. She made the experience richer and profound. I wished I had more time.

Great narration, very informative and historically accurate depiction of the stories and people that make this museum breathtaking. Would pay to do it again in the future.

Our tour guide, Dr. Cora Gibson was very friendly and she is a wealth of information! We enjoyed our time!!
Our guide most definitely added o this already moving experience.
Beatrice_S, 09-07-2022
Our guide was absolutely wonderful: knowledgeable, personable, a lovely man we wish could have guided us through several museums during our stay. The only reason I’m not giving this 5 stars is because we had to wait in line with everyone else: no fast track for guided tours. Thank you Michael!!
