    I liked when we saw all the artifacts in the museum. Loved the personal ties to Arizona. Would love to see more fine arts content about African American leaders of fine arts in Tucson and Southern Arizona.” (Visitor)

    “I really liked how students got involved and how we felt very comfortable and connected while at the museum. I liked the campus tour, but not all of the walking since everything was so far away.” (Teacher)

    “I think the more promotional materials and takeaways the better. If it can be put in the budget, more goody bags and crown materials. My students still talk about their crown. It feels like an accessible souvenir especially when everything in the bookstore might be out of their pay range.” (Teacher)

    “We also really enjoyed the spotlight on African American Women’s History. The former history majors really enjoyed the information on the Buffalo Soldiers because we didn’t know much about them, not being from the area and the lack of information in the curriculum across the US.” (Visitor)

    “I was wrong in doubting this museum’s performance due to its small size. Its impressive collections are worth hours of viewing. This museum helped me learn more about American history and inspired me to preserve my family history as well.” (Volunteer Mingde)
