From one of Atlanta's first Black owned business to pioneer stories to local historical information to baseball to videos at the Trolley Theater, the Apex Museum is full of artifacts, photographs, children's shows, presentations and more – all related to African-American culture, both past and present.

Thought the trolley seating and the artifacts from the past were awesome. The wax figures really set the stage for history. It is smal. And we wished it was bigger, but it is a matter of funding.

“It needs work.”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

Recently I visited the Apex Museum as part of a Black History trip with a group of college students. Our tour guide left a lot of stuff up to us to figure out and talked to us as if we were third graders. "Yall do know what 'mulatto' mean right...?" They could have just said, "Mulatto means ..." and it would have been taken better. It was okay okay for little kids but now college students. I think that she should take note of what group (age range) she has and adjust accordingly. Also "Malcolm X" name is misspelled. That should definitely be corrected because sometimes mistakes like that tend to stick more in the minds of the visitors when they leave. The museum itself is really nice though.
