At first glance, the DuSable Museum of African American History appears pretty modest, especially for a city rich in history like Chicago. You will be happy you stopped once you walk through the doors and begin touring the galleries. The first floor includes several permanent and extended period displays while the ground floor hosts the special exhibit area and auditorium. In a few years the museum is planning a major expansion and plans to incorporate an old park building just to the south of the museum. If you need some exercise, Washington Park is right next door.
