Surprising history, interesting collection

I was surprised to hear about the Islamic Heritage Museum. It is pretty close to the Anacostia metro but we drove. There's parking alongside the building and in front on the street (during certain hours). Enjoyed the perfume/soap/clothing/incense stand in front of the museum. It's located in the old Clara Muhammad School building. One story maybe seven gallery rooms of different sizes. Different historical years are in each room. Large collection of Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali memorabilia. A lot of interesting historical information prompted me to look stuff up afterwards. Definitely worth a visit
