Cultural Experience! 12/9/2008

The DuSable Museum is a great cultural experience for anyone who wants to learn more or experience African-American history. I love the store, I always find myself spending so much money especially on the mechanical pencils. I loved those items when I was a kid growing up. The sculptures and the exhibits is probably one of the most enlightening parts. more

Field Trips 7/16/2005

I went to the Dusable Museum several times for school field trips. It's an interesting place that highlights the achievements of African Americans such as Annie Malone, and shows off a lot of artwork too. This museum is a nice change from the bigger museums in the city. It is usually not as crowded, so you can really take your time at each display. A must see! more
