This is the one museum within the Exposition Park museum complex worth making a special trip to visit. The other museums have good collections (Natural History Museum) and interesting displays (California Science Center) but for me at least, they fail to generate the same degree of interest as the California African American Museum. This museum has an eclectic mix of exhibits. One of the current exhibits- the history of Gospel Music is especially informative.

Lots of art by African American artists that's tied in with history. It's not a big museum but you can spend two or three hours here.

This museum was pretty good but not great. The exhibits seemed a bit sparse, although the ones they had were interesting.
