We toured this museum, a lot of history to learn and it's in the inner harbor. The museum is very hands on, inexpensive, great family attraction. Lots to do while you are at the inner harbor. A must see, if you love black history.

Built on the historic site of the first African-American shipyard. In a series of restored warehouses, this is a great museum with a great message - both diversity and preserving the maritime environment.
