Back in October I got some timed passes to the National Museum of African American History. I had a two year old in tow, so I didn’t get to spend as much time as I’d like reading everything, but I liked the museum and thought everything was very well done. You start in the basement where it is dark and cramped, simulating the feel of a slave ship. Then you work your way through time. I’ve read a fair amount on slavery, but still learned plenty of new things. I thought the sports section in particular was incredible and a celebration of achievement. Some parts were tough, not unlike visiting the Holocaust museum. Others light; the music and culture section was similar to what you see at American history. The bottom line is that I’ll definitely go back, and recommend that everyone go. If you eat there, and you should, the BBQ chicken with Alabama white sauce was amazing. Smoky and delicious. The fried chicken was very good, but not spectacular. I also tried some stuffed rainbow trout and would recommend it. Every side I had was great, and the sweet tea was delicious.
