I have seldom been so impacted The reverberations will be stunning and historic, from where I sit. The rawness of each speaker came through. The personal, the national, the global implications of Ferguson were brilliantly spread before me in the language of heart and soul. Artists, writers, poets, musicians, mothers and fathers pierced my numbness as preachers, politicians, and lawmakers could not.

The videos were spot on, thoughtfully conceived under the pressure of time.

Thank You is not sufficient to the Staff of the Museum...or to the 3 women who went through long hours of labor birthing the Production.

As soon as possible, PLEASE POST when the film will be shown on Seattle TV or when we can purchase it for replay.

Thank you for providing this opportunity to learn more about how the past has shaped the present. I appreciated hearing the stories spoken, seeing pictures in the timeline. I wonder if there is any way to recreate the smell of oppression?

Every time Ive taken my kids there, their are not African American Childrens area. Hoping they will showcase some african American Childrens books and items that were used long ago and today to interest more families and have more family friendly exibits.

1floor of works important to the Pacific Northwest African American population. Well laid out. Gave me insight on issues I did not understand completely.

Heavy on wordy displays, which are hard for kids to get into. But some displays were really inviting. Storytime was wonderful!

A great source of history of African Americans in Seattle. Also a place for positivity for the Central District community.

Nice little history lesson. Wish there was more to it though...

This and the Wing Luke are my two favorite museums in Seattle. It's always got exhibits that are interesting and important to me. They have a good rotation and plenty of events with good speakers. Of course they do an excellent job of highlighting African American voices. And it's the most affordable of all the Seattle museums, I think admission is $4 and memberships are similar. Keep doing what you're doing NAAM!

Packs a powerful cultural punch for such a "young" museum. The NAAM staff honors its roots by consistently centering the LOCAL African American experience, in a predominantly white city and state. Kid- friendly and family-friendly, prioritizes reaching out to the surrounding community. They are increasing the frequency of their visual arts and literary arts events as well.

Love this as an event space. Plenty of parking and attentive staff.

Northwest African American Museum is a beautiful place to appreciate historical and cultural significance of African Americans and to get insight on their perspective and experience.

Nordia S

Its wonderful that this space is available to recognize and honor the important contributions of African Americans.

A small but very nice, informative Museum. A visit here is a great way to find out about the history of Black people in the Pacific Northwest. I was impressed by the inclusion of so many stories of Black life in the Northwest both by folks born here and by those who immigrated here. I was also impressed with the programming offered such as talks and workshops. This gem of a museum is definitely worth of visit.

Underrated museum. They have some consistently good rotating exhibits in two rooms. There are also some exhibits that are always there. The staff is friendly and their gift shop doubles as a genealogy room where folks can research their ancestry.

I recently visited and saw a fabulous exhibit that left me thinking about displacement. And also feeling like I had found a community, my community that is so oppressed. However, we are here, thriving more and more. I think we will one day take the Central District back.

Wish the museum was bigger but I loved the exhibits they did have. Really nice space though.

Conveniently located, nice surrounding area. Terrible parking! The spots are so small that a compact car barely fits in. Non of the spots are marked as "compact", but if two SUVs (properly) park next to each other, someone guaranteed to not be able get out of their vehicle. I did not see a current exhibit but attended an event here.

This is a great venue! I love my experience here! Beautiful exhibit as well. This venue needs much better parking.

This place is amazing! Its huge and I actually wanted to learn about african history. The black panther exhibit was totally awesome. I didn't know that the WIC program was created by the Black Panthers or that they created a free medical clinic for the neighborhood, and that they originally were established to patrol African American neighborhoods to protect residents from acts of police brutality. I really took my time admiring the pieces of art and really trying to appreciate where the artist was coming from and their point of view. ***Deep sigh in*** Just an amazing place and amazing experience. I love the gift shop too! I admire how they are advertising the local artists in there, and I will be in there soon. my mugs and card will be inside the gift shop soon. excited! ***update*** I AM IN THE MUSEUM GIFTSHOP NOW. go get a mug or tote. #gosupport

Small but powerful. I learned a lot about the history of African Americans and their contributions in the PacNW area. The Black Panther exhibit was especially interesting.

Great historic displays and unforgettable events. I love that we have such a powerful cultural learning experience right here in the PNW.

Very nice museum that I did not know before. Definitely worth a visit. Very thought provoking. A hidden secret of Seattle.

A treasure trove of details, facts, and history. The depth and breadth of the history of Black people in Washington is just amazing.

It cool I guess I just wasn't amazed at anything they had to show except Hendrix's hat.

A great little museum in a tucked away corner of Seattle. The Northwest African American Museum provides a glimpse into the history and culture of African Americans in the PNW.

JDOGS S

The history that is displayed is awesome. Some displays are changed up every couple of months. You can't be the price of only $7. I love it and I have learned so much.

Nikita G

Got a pass through Seattle Public Library and happened to visit when a temporary exposition about Jimi Hendrix was on. Really interesting. The museum regularly has all sorts of events and activities. There's also a pretty good gift shop.

This is a small museum in a large building, but if you think you know black history, or north west history, you better check this out because they have numerous unexpected details.

Krystal S

Beautiful building. The museum is always changing with interesting and engaging displays.
