A relatively small museum with a collection of military weapons, and civilian and military equipment, and documentation, recalling the achievements and contribution to American civil and military history by black Americans who fought for their country.

We are visiting from Australia and found this museum while searching for places to visit. A wonderful museum, beautifully set out and cared for. It was informative and staff were very helpful. To do it justice, allow time to really absorb the history.
