Exhibit has artifacts across several historical periods. We enjoyed the informative film and we especially enjoyed the Harriet Tubman re-enactment. The whole experience was memorable for everyone in our group, especially the youth. Located in Houston's Museum District this is a site not to miss.

Want to find out the History of The Buffalo Soldiers? A very easy day and such wonderful information to discover. The lecture on the underground railroad was outstanding. Plan on going back and will spend longer time with research information available.

We are US History buffs and were very impressed with this Museum. Although not large in volume it is very informative in the struggle of Blacks to serve the USA military in a segregated environment. A one hour tour would be enough.

I kinda stumbled upon this place trying to kill time. There was a lot of African American history put into this place. I learned a lot here. The tour guide was pretty good! The price was not bad. I definitely would recommend this museum.
