African American Museum

From the time we could still visit museums, here is a blog with an activity to look forward to after COVID - 19. (2 min. read)

When you get a chance visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture in D.C.

A journey from the 1400s to now the museum offers an interactive time travel experience enriched with history and emotion. No matter whether you’re a historian or a tourist, there is something to learn for everyone. The best time to visit is a weekday between 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Start from the bottom and end on the top floor, which is a tribute to music, theater and tv personalities. The museum cannot be captured in pictures, nor will you wish to take them as you view the exhibits. Here is just a tiny sample of what to expect.

Iron pot used to bowl down cane sugar. "Sugar - sweeter, more powerful, and more deadly than gold. Unlike gold, sugar could be grown; it provided the possibility of unlimited wealth. Life expectancy for an endangered worker on early sugar plantations was seven years..."

Tools of trade during the Vietnam War.

At this section of the museum, you can enter and see the inside of a train during segregation.

Worth the visit!
