Not exactly Madame Toussaunt's, but a stroll through this museum will enhance your historical knowledge. See Egyptian rulers, Union soldiers, harriett Tubman and a ship of enslaved children enroute to America....
Just what it says, a museum showing great Blacks in wax, from many different eras.
Interesting, and informative, with a room that gives you the feel of being in a slave ship. Also, moving exhbits on lynching. Basically, the museum depicts parts of U.S. history sometimes excluded in textbooks.
This museum is very moving and is not for the faint at heart. They even warn parents with children under 12 to decide if they can see the lynching displays. You will not come back out the same person even if you do know Black History. Why because pictures/images go beyond words.
Its not in the prettiest of neighborhoods or facility but it packs a powerful punch in its message(s) on what was and what is.
Unfortunately it is not wheelchair accessible.
You can take pictures but you can not touch the items.
