Dre was an amazing tour guide! He was very knowledgeable and friendly. The African American history museum itself is very big and you honestly would need more than one day to explore all the exhibits. The tour takes you to several different monuments in the city and then at the very end leaves you to explore the museum on your own. Overall still a great and wonderful experience! Definitely will be back to explore the lower level exhibits (there was an hour wait to view the lower level). Oh the food in the cafe isn’t that great and way too expensive, eat before you come!
