I am a music fan. I really enjoyed the African American music museum. Listening to all the different music, and able to have an play list that I was able to save and listen to later from my email was an extra bonus.

So much culture and history to learn from the era of slaves to modern day Hip Hop. The interactive exhibit attraction and the ambiance is unforgettable. The cleanliness and staff are bonus!.
