Traveling with a purpose

Quaint museum. Learned of GA artists that I had not known before. Very nice staff. It's like a hodge podge of African American history under one roof.

This museum is a must visit if the history of slaves escaping the south resonates with you. The movie is very disturbing and prompted me to read more stories from former slaves. Take your kids to it!

a very interesting place to visit, host was knowledgeable,friendly and courteous...even though there was upstairs rooms, it was kind of small(moving to a larger building across from the sports hall, where the festival was held in a yr) family and i enjoyed it

The Senior members from my Stone Mountain, GA church thoroughly enjoyed the museum, especially the knowledgeable guide. It was easy to understand the relevance of the displays and the importance of Ms. Tubman's sacrifices and well-deserved place in America's history. This type of exhibit makes you think and does not just readily hand everything to the visitors. As always, you... More

Last I heard the ambitious exploits of the former mayor were largely bankrupt and had left the city in the same condition. Several museums, opened near this location, at the cost of bulldozers and who knows what. Now they closed because no one really wanted to pay the price of admission of nothingness. Most of these now are empty shells... More

LOTS of history, the kind every human should know about regardless of race. School field trips are PERFECT. Very clean & in a great location. Also great to add to activities for your family reunion. There are also other places to see within the vicinity.

After visiting some of the other museums of similar theme in other southern cities, I was very disappointed by this one. It follows the typical story line, but the displays are small and well worn.

This is an excellent place to learn about black history. They have some really beautiful art work. Very enjoyable to take your time and walk through at your own pace.

The rooms just go on & on - there is much more here than you might think when you first enter. We took our 9 yr old son here & we were captivated & moved by what we saw. Through historical artifacts & mini-biographies, we learned about slavery & the abolitionists, the Civil Rights movement, & inventions by African Americans.... More

I was so glad that my church took me to this museum because I learned more from the tour guider, Mr. Todd, than historical books. Books don't break it down into a form that I can quite understand. Therefore with Mr. Todd I could ask as many question as I wanted with an answer that I could understand.
