A beautiful place with great staff. The layout seems well thought out. I would suggest that when you have films with subtitles that the camera be moved a little higher.I say that so the people in the back can read and get a better understanding of the film.

I attended specifically for a birthday celebration and only accessed the rooftop indoor and outdoor. Nice place to rent for an event. Great view of the Panthers Stadium from rooftop. I do think greater safety measures should be taken for railing especially since groups are allowed to have alcohol. No one had an issue in our group but I still couldn't help but notice. It rained that day and night and I was extra cautious out there because of the slippery like railing. Plenty of space to be out there and to still enjoy the view.

Attended a book signing by two of the Tuskegee airmen, also met one of the first African American piolets for the US Air Force at this museum. Very welcoming, great gift shop. I have attended several functions at this museum such as the Black and Gray holiday celebration, Dance theater of Harlem display, Alvin Aley exhibits, various fund raisers!, Always money well spend for worthy cause. Clean restrooms, parking validated at nearby lots. Great place to visit in the Queen City.

The Venue is nice, clean, big and elegant. Went for a New Years Cocktail party with three floors of fun. Amazing art pieces also adorned closed off spaces. Will go for the art and history on my next visit.
