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. The day I visited they were changing over an exhibit, so a large portion of things were not up, but the permanent collection did not disappoint. 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. I wish all ages and all people could see the photo. There are some one of a kind gift shop options and a passionate... More

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.

This museum deserves commentary. It has noteworthy memorabilia from the era of Harriet Tubman as well as items featuring her role as the Conductor of the Underground Railroad. To fully appreciate the information on display, reading is necessary of the various letters and presentations. There is a small gift shop with relevant literature and some souvenir items. And, I was... More

I was at a two week conference in Macon, GA and on a free weekend, decided to visit the Tubman Museum. Boy was I pleasantly surprised! The building was low and I thought it was going to be something quick. I ended up spending almost two hours looking around. At first when you walk in, there are murals on the... More
