This museum is amazing with information and emotionally-charged experience. However, it just can't handle the crowds. We were packed in like sardines in the C3 section of the history level. The C2 section wasn't a lot better. Because of this, we were unable to read and appreciate much of the exhibit. It seems like it's a bit too much information for the average person to absorb. As I've read the other reviews, it is like a book; one needs about 10 hours to take it all in. It is also was like a maze with exhibits going off in all directions. There is no coherent organization to this--you go on one side or another, missing half of the artifacts unless you double back. Other museums stagger the times so it's not so crowded. The totality of African American history is enormous. I think that it could have been whittled down a bit to allow a person an emotional experience in 2-3 hours--certainly not to lessen the affliction and pain of black Americans. The Holocaust Museum succeeds in this. The African American experience is one that all Americans should understand. Please don't make it so very difficult and tedious. Thank you in advance for the generic response, museum manager.
