This museum is a must-see for anyone seeking to learn about Black History. The staff was both knowledgeable and friendly. The guided tour was short and concise. They're seeking to expand and I must say there is a real need for the expansion. My family went last month and our children have told their friends to visit. Excellent x 2!

I never knew the history of "Sweet Auburn" the street. I believe this museum will introduce you to Black history that is unknown or definitely forgotten. The short films that are played are powerful and educational. The women's history room displayed achievements that should inspire and motivate people of all walks of life considering the numerous barriers they faces yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Overall, I am thankful to have been there an will continue to support this great piece of history.

Having visited the Martin Luther King Historical site and walking back to visit the Center for Civil and Human Rights, this is an extremely worthwhile and important inclusion in that journey. The staff are wonderfully helpful and enthusiastic about the exhibits. This provides excellent historical information about the local area and the efforts of the local population to work away from slavery. This would not be otherwise apparent. This area of Atlanta is clearly significant in that respect as well as the MLK elements. The museum provides very good information about the slavery element in a very well focussed way. It covers some elements not seen in other places.

My son took a group of young men from Albany, GA on a trip to this museum and it is the real history of our people. I would highly recommend all tourist and locals visit this museum for some true facts. The youngen really learned a lot and they are applying the knowledge to their lives.

After visiting the excellent Center for Civil and Human Rights and after touring many of the Civil Rights notable historical spots and after going to the MLK Jr. National Park and visitor center, we went to this little gem of a museum. It’s nothing glitzy and high tech like the other spots, but the history and stories on display, as well as the staff, make it well worth a visit. There is a very informative and important exhibit of African history prior to the slave trade when Africans were the Queens and Kings and movers and shakers of the country. There is also a very moving exhibit of a slave ship and other artifacts from that heinous history. There were also special exhibits of more current African American movers and shakers. It takes about an hour or even less to take in this unique little museum, and if you are interested in African American history, I highly recommend it as an addition to other historical sites in Atlanta.

I live in Marietta and found out about the museum via TripAdvisor. The center is small and all you need is about an hour to watch the short video and walk through to do the readings. Zima gave us a wonderful overview of the Apex and I would recommend to anyone interested in Atlanta Black History.

My friend and I got here late but the lady was gracious to let us walk around and see the exhibits. It was very nice of the lady and everyone should go see it. We missed the tour but next time we will make it to the tour. It’s a must see
