"We did not honor the request of the Donald Trump team because we thought they demonstrated, in their approach was disrespectful, so therefore we did not grant that request," said Early Jones, co-founder of the museum.
Jones called the campaign aggressive and rude to museum staff.
The campaign also asked for the museum to be closed for at least five hours to accommodate Trump, she said.
Jones said the museum does not provide special treatment to anyone.
"The approach, the type of disrespect, pretty much a demand and bullying us to use the museum in their manner and their way in their time, it was inappropriate and I think it's probably reflective of the type of insensitivity of civil rights and human rights that's reflective from Trump over the years," Jones said.
