Fodor's Review

A Smithsonian affiliate, the museum showcases the rich history and culture of African Americans, with a special focus on Maryland. The permanent gallery features famous Marylanders such as Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, Cab Calloway, and Thurgood Marshall, as well as unsung heroes who helped make the state what it is today. Besides rotating exhibitions, visitors can enjoy live performances from gospel and jazz to steel drums. The monthly film series has enriched audiences on the history of soul food, civil rights, and more. For families, programs like art workshops and living history bring the museum's mission to life. Lectures and the resource center enrich what visitors will find in the permanent collection. Soul food is served at the museum cafe.
