This is a relatively modest museum in both size and vision, but I enjoyed it and am sorry that it took so long for me to get there. The exhibits were informative and worthwhile.

I love everything about this museum. It was fun and educational. Love the interactive videos and the exhibits on the upper floors.

The exhibits were interactive and very informative. The galleries upstairs showcased artwork of Philadelphia natives and Celebrity images. Would definitely go back again.

Wonderful history. Of the two exhibits, one is sparse and the narratives accompanying the pieces could be in larger font. The front staff could be more personable and OFFER information vs. Patrons HAVING to inquire; I was visiting after all. Also, IF the is a discount for military/veterans I was not made aware of that. I truly enjoyed the "live" presentations (video).

Honest review here: I visited today and was greeted by the visitors clerk, who was nice. There are some parts of the museum that are in need of sprucing up for sure. The display shelves for the museum shop are very dusty. Looks like they have not been tended to in a while. The exhibits are fair (but basic) on the 1st 2 levels, the 3rd level that housed the Sonya Clark exhibit was good, but kinda on the dark side with the lighting. The 4th floor where the Do or Die exhibit was showed well and I enjoyed that. Overall it is a decent museum. I hope to see more interesting and modern exhibits added in the future.
