  • The APEX Museum is located in the "Sweet Auburn" area of Atlanta. Sweet Auburn was an African American area in Atlanta prior to desegregation. MLK grew up in the area and the Ebenezer Baptist Church is located there as well. The APEX is small which affords an intimate experience. Staff is friendly, helpful, and personable. There are 2 short introductory films and the small museum is filled with information. I would personally recommend the APEX more than I would recommend the new museum in Washington DC!
  • Small but wonderful museum. There is a lot of information packed into the space. The videos at the start of the visit offer a great overview of African American history and commerce in the area and provided perspective when looking through the other exhibits. The exhibits could use a little updating although what is there lays groundwork for reflection and encourages additional study. I highly recommend!
  • Great museum. Staff was friendly and helpful. Women in STEM exhibit was informative and inspiring.
  • Very first visit with my 10 yr old daughter. She was very impressed. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and my daughter was able to explain to me afterwards what she had learned about her visit. I highly recommend taking your entire family there if your looking for something to do on a Saturday afternoon. Very affordable!
  • The Apex Museum is a great place to learn some history about Atlanta. It's small and not a big place,but it's worth the price.
