interesting and unique museum 12/20/2005

This museum showcases wax figures of well known and important African Americans throughout history. Along with the figures, information is provided about the lives and accomplishments of the people featured. You'll learn a lot here - the figures featured go beyond the usual few token African American figures featured in text books. The neighborhood surrounding the museum can be dangerous, so look for close parking, and don't leave valuables exposed in your car. more

Great Blacks in Wax Museum 8/21/2005

The Great Blacks in Wax Museum was the first wax museum about black history. It first opened in 1983 with 21 wax figures and it has grown and expanded over the years and now houses over 140 wax figures. The museum not only shows well known events in black history, it also shows regular every day lives of blacks. Some of the exhibits include Harriet Tubman, the Underground Railroad, a slave ship, Egyptian rulers, and many other wonderful exhibits. It's such a great museum and there is so much to learn. Side note: It's chilly there b/c if it gets too warm the wax will melt, so you may want to bring a sweater. more

Great blacks 8/19/2005

this musuem describes everything about the american slaves and their struggles. It is indeed very touching . Some of them are really disturbing and not suitable for very small children. It is located near to heart of baltimore i.e Inner Harbour. With all the wax structures, there are stories wriiten about them. You can give your 2hrs time to visit such an emotional place. more

Like Learning About Different Cultures 8/18/2005

This museum is the first wax museum of African-America history and culture. The museum has more than 140 life-sized wax figures that depict the daily lives of black people. Visitors come face to face with Egyptian Rulers, Harriet Tubman and many others historical blacks. Visitors will also see enslaved children aboard a boat bound for America. more

could use some updates 8/3/2005

This is a museum to learn about and experience African American history. There is alot of very good information throughout the displays. Some of the wax figures could use a little work as they are showing some wear. But, if you are into history, and focus on the message, you will enjoy this museum. more
