Awesome museum! It's small but very detailed. Was able to meet and take a picture with Sgt Maj James Williams. He greeted us warmly. I went on Thursday when it was free from 1pm to 5pm

Free museum admission Thursdays. Gift shop available and additional artifacts have been added since our last visit. It includes uniforms from many different branches of the military including NASA. It is a smaller museum but nonetheless worth a visit.

A relatively small museum with a collection of military weapons, and civilian and military equipment, and documentation, recalling the achievements and contribution to American civil and military history by black Americans who fought for their country.
