Easily hosted our large group for after hours dinner and drinks. Beautiful architecture with food and drink stations on two levels. Traffic to get here was difficult at 6:00 though. Really good food!

You need a lot of time , It is like a big book. To read a book takes about +-10 hours. So be prepared.

I have visited this museum twice now. The first time I spent 2 hours on the top floor. It wasn't possible to get to the lower floors since I had arrived late in the day. On my recent visit, I was able to visit the lower concourses. I've grown up with stories of the Middle Passage, slavery, segregation, etc., but the museum still did justice to the experiences of people who lived through them. Some chaperones on my trip said they cried as they made their way through the exhibits-- the experiences of African Americans was done justice here. Food tip-- this is said to be the best food on the Mall.

The museum is beautiful and free! Don’t take the tour for 30 dollar per person! It does not add anything to the visiting. It’s a shame for TripAdvisor to offer this tour. Sorry to say, but the group isn’t small, the lovely old man is hard to understand and he is speaking for the whole museum.
