On Saturday afternoons in February, reserve your place to visit the Freedom House Museum during special hours in honor of Black History Month. You can get a rare look inside the Freedom House Museum through a special partnership between the Northern Virginia Urban League and the Office of Historic Alexandria. A National Historic Landmark owned by the Northern Virginia Urban League, the museum is located in the basement-level of one of the most infamous slave trading companies in the country, and bears a connection to the story depicted in the Oscar winning film 12 Years a Slave. The museum is small but powerful with original artifacts and first-person narratives told through video and exhibits. Public access to the museum is normally limited, but exclusive Saturday access will be offered each weekend in February from 1p to 5p with African American history specialists on site.
