A good experience with a nice stuff. Don't miss it! Not the typical mainstream high tech museum but the effort and love those people but inside is amazing. It gives an informative view about the slavery in Atlanta and the efforts to overcome this cruel period of time.

I had a fabulous visit at the APEX Museum in the downtown area just west of 75. This museum tells the story of how Atlanta became the mecca for African American culture and business in the south. There is two 15 minute films to watch as well. Yolanda Jackson and the rest of the staff does an excellent job of... More

I have visited this place a few time and i just find it so tranquil. This place is great if you are a true art buff and just want a quick day adventure. I recommend going more than once because you miss alot of great piece when you are just passing through. A must see.

Nice small museum with interesting African American history. There are some things that I already knew but soooo much more that I didn't. I would definitely go at least once more. They show 2 short movies that are narrated by Cicely Tyson and Ossie Davis. There is a lot of history about Auburn street in Georgia as well. I really... More

A mixture of well executed presentations and half-assed printed articles off wikipedia, I left somewhat engaged and yet disappointed.
