What a fascinating place. Lots of information about Black soldiers and sailors—and not just during the Civil War. The Civil War is clearly the main focus, but there's also a some information on the background of some slaves before they were brought to America, and how Black soldiers served in the American Revolution and the War of 1812, in addition to their services in subsequent wars and some information about the Civil Rights struggle. I think these are important parts of the picture, partly because for a long time, every time the US got in a major war, they turned to Black soldiers and sailors, whose valorous contributions were then erased from history, leaving the next generations of white politicians and high ranking officers to ignorantly say that they didn't think Black men would make good soldiers. Here, though, you can see Washington's and Hamilton's and Andrew Jackson's high opinions of the Black soldiers who served under them; you can see how they participated in famous events like the capture of New Orleans in 1815 and Lee's surrender at Appomattox; you can see how a political cartoonist expressed impatience with Revolutionary politicians who were, in the cartoonist's view, blind to the need for Black recruits; you can learn about how some of the Tuskeegee officers gate-crashed a segregated officers' club. There are also sections honoring the many Black recipients of the Medal of Honor in the Civil War—and a part telling about how Black service members were excluded from the Medal of Honor in some later wars.

One thing that might be nice for the museum to change in the future is to display more physical artifacts from the Civil War and provide more information/background/context for the artifacts that they do have on display. Overall, though, it was terrific. This is a story that needs to be told more. And besides, so much of history is about one group of people oppressing another—it feels refreshing to learn about a moment when group of people fought for their collective freedom from slavery and won, even if victory came at a terrible human cost.

The African American Civil War Memorial is a really cool sight. It isn’t just one sided so you can walk around a get multiple views. Surrounding the monument are silver plaques dedicated to African Americans that fought in the war. Our tour guide told us that Michelle Obama found one of her relatives on a plaque.

contrary to a previous review we would say that there is a lot here. the history of the african american role in the civil war is huge. while this museum in no way rivals the smithsonian for grandeur and expense of its exhibits, there is still a powerful lesson of history to be learned. the "living history" actor posing as a member of an african american army regular was fun as he showed us the use of the arms of that unit and answered questions. allow about 1 hour. there is no entry fee.

This museum is absolutely fantastic. My second visit, it didn’t fail to disappoint. My children are 10 and found it really interesting. It’s particularly poignant on the lower floors, so the contemplation court is perfect to sit and reflect. The upper floors bring so much joy. The cafe is excellent, the staff are fab.

This is not part of the Smithsonian - it is basically nothing more than a bunch of posters - there are few if any original artifacts.

This poignant memorial with its large bronze sculpture honors the some 220,000 African American and Hispanica soldiers and 20,000 black sailors who served the Union during the Civil War. The sculpture was designed by black sculptor, Ed Hamilton, of Louisville, KY. Commissioned by the DC Arts and Humanities Commission in 1993 and dedicated in 1997. Important for all to know the contributions by brave soldiers of color during the Civil War.

It is my understanding that the memorial and museum fulfilled a lifelong dream of Dr. Frank Smith, Jr., a four-term member of the D.C. district council, who oversaw the dedication of the African American Civil War Memorial in July 1998, to honor African Americans who fought for freedom as "USTC" (United States "Colored" Troops). Both are a wonderful tribute to those troops. The museum is as others suggest not huge or overwhelming yet chock-full of interesting and oft-times moving information and displays. While I was there a docent gave an informative and emotional talk that was great. Do not miss the memorial -- it's across the street from the entrance to the museum. It is a small but potent and memorable tribute to the USCT. If you want to get off the beaten path of the Mall, and learn something while paying tribute to American heroes, go here. (My photos are "OK' but don't capture the power of the statutes, and there was NO way I could bring to life the plaques listing the names of the 200,000 (yes, two hundred thousand) USCT who served, so I didn't include those.) (P.S. It's hard to decide how much time to recommend. I chose 1-2 hours because like many/most museums if you try to ingest everything it can be a bit overwhelming -- you literally could spend days if you read everything. So 1-2 or 2-3 depending on YOU.)

A meaningful display of the horrific history of slavery, Jim Crow, and American racism. In spite of such hardships this museum documents the fight of freedom by many heroic people.

I selected this Museum because my husband is interested in military history and I am so happy that I did. The exhibit is not large, but it is jam packed with information that every American should know about the African American heroes who fought for the Union and Confederate armies. The young man who was our Museum docent was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The information that we received at the African American civil War Museum was the perfect introduction to the National Museum of African American history and culture that we subsequently visited. By the way, the African American Civil War Memorial is directly across the street. My only comment is that this Memorial should be larger so that the sacrifices of those men are not missed.
