We were fortunate to tag onto a third grade class field trip. The Director of Education, Tonya Parker, was excellent describing the culture to the students in a way that was educational to them as well as us. The other employees were just super also. It was a joy to be there.

This is not a large museum but it is definitely a must see. It is great for a family but I also enjoyed it as a 50 year old single male. The history of the time comes alive.

I highly recommend taking a few hours and visiting this museum. Very interesting and educational. Well done, absolutely watch movie about the Crafts escape from slavery. Harriet Tubman was simply amazing. The people running this are as nice as they can be and helped us understand where things were in Macon.

I was pleasantly surpassed by this museum! The staff was extremely friendly.

I was expecting it to be solely work related to Tubman, but there was a good mixture of mediums and artwork of... More

The photos and artifacts on display are incredible. In one photo during a garbage collector strike in the 60's a group of Black men wearing a sign stating: I am a man hits your heart strong.

The museum is very small and the permanent display is quite limited. They do some excellent special exhibitions, though. I saw the one on Georgia chain gangs from the 1930s and it was superb.

I participated in a series of learning events at the Tubman. I learned about the Craft Couple who made history during the Civil War. I have lived in Middle Georgia for years and appreciated the opportunity to learn about people I had never heard of.
