I really enjoyed my visit to this museum. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. I have visited several civil rights and african american museums over the years, and this is one of my favorites. Their displays and information often give a different perspective to the slave experience and history. I learned a lot and encourage you to learn there as well.

This small museum is the school Richard Wright graduated from. It was the first school building built for black children in Jackson in the 1890’s. It is filled with rich exhibits of the history of the slave trade to the Civil Rights movement with art exhibits from local artists. Well worth a visit!

We loved this small museum. We only had a couple of hours to spend in Jackson so we visited this museum instead of the Civil Rights Museum. It was perfect for my kids, aged 6 and 9. Not too small, not too big but filled with inspiring stories and history. Very educational and highly recommend!

This building was once a thriving school for African American children. Author, Richard Wright, is one of their famous alumni. Displays include a brief history of slavery, the Great Migration, and Civiil Rights. For me the most powerful sights were the Medgar Evers exhibit and the Slave Ship. Seeing the bloody clothing of Evers's neighbor hanging on a fence really brings home the lack of justice available for African Americans. Walking through a cramped and darkened slave ship was eerie and impactful. The staff is rightfully passionate about their museum and their subject matter. Take the time to visit this hidden gem!

This is a great museum that covers African American history and has great artifacts on display from when it was actually open. It definitely is a way to show the price of an education and progress. The staff is great and definitely loves to engage on African American history and artifacts. Please stop by and visit if you are in the downtown area and support this activity.

We spent over 2 hours in this small little gem of a museum. It is an excellent compliment to the larger Civil Rights Museum. Do not pass up this museum.

If you are confused about why youth don't take action or behave better, it's my opinion that they haven't experience this historical museum. I brought my child to have a better understanding of sacrifices of our ancestors. The use of Certain language we shouldn't speak changed my child's mindset. It's a reality all youth should see! Learn 👏

This is a hidden treasure in Jackson, MS. I was looking for something to entertain some of my aunts ages 50-76 as they do a mini vacation every year. All 10 of my aunts were amazed that this museum was here in Jackson. The attractions were great history.

For $5.50 pp, you learn about James Meredith (who is still alive in 2017) and his courageous story. There is an exhibit about Medgar Evers, which elaborated on his story from the home museum tour. There is a life size exhibit of a Woolworth's counter, and a historic sit-in with photos.

Most impactful is the ship, and standing in the A/C trying to envision those conditions
It's astonishing anyone arrived alive, and tragic

The museum was locked when we arrived b/c there was only one staff member there. If you see a car, someone is there and give them a chance to get to the door before you give up. Several people arrived just before closing (5 p.m.). If you read most or all of the signage (like we do), budget approximately 2 hours.
