How would you rate Newsome House Museum & Cultural Center?
They were kind enough to allow my family member to host an Autism Art Gallery without charging her!! Thank you!!
This place is worth a visit. The architecture alone is something to behold. Welcoming staff a real plus. Going back next weekend.
What a beautiful home. My husband and cousins just got back from visiting. Loved how they are preserving our black histoty.
Wonderful place to hold community meetings
The house is still in shape
Wow! I am so glad that I came. The preservation of this house was amazing. If have never been definitely go. The house is also available for displaying artwork, meetings and many other things. The owner of the house has a deep rooted history in Newport News. Very close to the Downing Gross Cultural Center. Free admission with a $2 donation if possible.
Amazing museum. Great cultural events as well. Check out their social media for Black History facts!
Great history I didn't if know about but I will be back
Lots of good history. Very nice and well kept house thanks to the city of Newport News.
Such a neat little historic place, in Newport News about a 1/2 hour from Williamsburg. It was great seeing a historical home that has been so preserved, and is still a pillar in the community in the legacy of Mr. Newsome. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and friendly, we learned and laughed all throughout our tour. Plan for maybe 45 minutes or so. There is no "set" admission fee, but they do suggest a $2 donation, which was worth it in our opinion.
Learn your history of Newport news and Virginia law.
