How would you rate Casa del Rey Moro Museum?
By far the best museum in the state of California. Professor Chuck Ambers has a wealth of knowledge and a winning personality to match. He or one of his friendly staff will lead you through a tour of the museum. You will learn thousands upon thousands of years worth of history in an a hour's time.
This is an African museum devoted to showing the history of African people as it pertains to the world. A great place to learn true history, not just HIS story. I suggest that everyone go to this museum at least once in your life.
Good museum ran by good-hearted people.
Interesting. Alot of the things I believed in.
Obtain the education you didn't receive in school here!
best experience ever, i will going back soon. it was so interesting and everything is amazing.
True history of the origins of African legacy in America
Vast selection of #AfricanAmerican and #African #Artifacts!
Chuck and the museum are both amazing. So much history!
Wow! Dr. Ambers and Mr. Haynes-Pitts were gracious to give us a personal, in-depth tour of African Latin history that has shaped and contributed to our world. This museum and shop is a treasure chest. Extraordinary! They do educational and cultural programming and foreign cultural tours. Keep history alive, in our hearts, our minds, in our hands, in our world.
My experience at Casa Del Rey Moro was amazing. The curator was very personable and knowledgeable. It's a great place to take classes as they will send you worksheets for the group. I definitely plan to return and bring my family
My fiancee and I stumbled upon this gem by chance. An excellent learning experience and some amazing pieces of history. The wonderfully enthusiastic curator Professor Chuck Ambers is a delight to listen to and you will learn a hell of a lot in a short time period. Highly recommended.
This place is fantastic! Informative, educational and the people are kind and knowledgeable. I recommend this place for students or if you just want to know who you are as an African American or Latino
I stumbled upon this gem of a place while looking for parking in Old Town San Diego, and had to go in. I was fortunate enough to have a private tour with the professor (the curator) himself. This museum boasts a plethora of collectible items, from around the world, books and historical moments in black history, as well as other minority movements integral in getting the resting of society's awareness and understanding that inequality will not stand. Great place to get woke, and see the work that generations before us had to do, and we that we must continue to do, to reach true equality.
Fun fact: if you have any original pins from Olympic Games around the world, the professor will trade happily swap stories and trade with you.
Absolutely loved it! It was so facinating. I would like to get back there one day and encourage anyone interested in California's history to visit.
The museum is small and looks unassuming, but it is absolutely packed with wonderful things. Expect to take your time because the cuator is a fantastic font of knowledge who shares freely. There are hidden treasures to see and a few to buy.
Spent 30 minutes. I'd love to visit for a whole day and soak in the culture Professor Chuck provides.
There's a lot of information to be seen but you can tell when a tour guide doesn't know what they're giving you a your on. The door fee is super inexpensive and you get a study guide to take notes on. Not a good place to visit for folks with a physical disability.
I thought it was amazing to show how many black people have not been written in history books and not gotten recognition for their achievements. I only give them "three" stars because the place was so small and would have been easier to see every thing in a larger space with lots of captions. They could use some funding for a larger place...
Small area packed with many interesting artifacts. The owner is very knowledgeable as most books and artifacts are from his travels throughout Africa and his time as a college professor. Many ethic items for sale,. Can't wait to visit again.
It's an African Museum in San Diego that is operated by one if the Black Studies professors at San Diego State University. A lot historical things there from Africa, Black America, black Europeans if you want a real deal history this is a great place to come.
Amazing place with a great guide and wealth of knowledge and history. fun for all ages to attend
GREAT SPEAKER AND THE DR. IS A MASTER AT TEACHING ABOUT THE BLACK DIASPORA!!
Loved it, great tour of the place the professor is amazing with his knowledge, plan to go again the next time I'm in San Diego.
This place needs a lot of help. They have great stuff, but you wouldn't know it because you cant see it for all the other stuff. Needs better narration and explantions that tie in with the Old Town San Diego experience. Clean it up and organize it and you will have another jewel of San Diego that no one should miss. If you have the time and the energy volunteer to help out, do it!
A diamond in the rough! So many books, newspaper clippings, paintings, artifacts and more. The value of the history contained in this dusty little building deserves to be in a bigger place worthy of display. Professor Chuck provides am educational experience unlike none other.
Our last day in San Diego we spent the day on a personal tour of this wonderful gem. A small house filled with the most exciting, educational, and uplifting exhibits of World Black History. This small institute is a living treasure that has thousands of stories and history lessons for the World to learn.
Fantastic exhibit about the hidden histories that you don't get anywhere else
Very informative. Nice gift shop.
Very interesting visit and learned much about African History. The professor is a character!
Must See In Old Town
Wonderful find in Old Town to get a unique perspective of African history and the history of Black people in the new world. Also, a lot of history about local Black culture. We have visited many museums and this one is well worth your time. DW/SW
It was great, I got my own 2 hour personal tour.
Its an experience. You will learn some interesting facts.
Very informative and eye opening. There's a lot history to learn in this museum and it's one of the most remarkable stops while in San Diego. I was just touring Old Town area and a gentleman told me about it. I was happy to see that it's one of the stops on the Hop On Hop Off Tours. Highly recommended
Absolutely amazing 😍 so much history
One of the greatest Black Museum of African Culture. If African Americans want to know their history without biases, this is the place to educate one's self.
What a amazing place, tons of artifacts, the currator really knows his history!!
Lots of knowledge about African American history no matter the day in time is hidden away in this little building. I was out in San Diego visiting over the...read this and 8 more
