  • Powerful experience! What a blessing to have our rich history illuminated in the manner the APEX does!
  • As soon as I walked in, I felt as though I was loved. The environment was great and I love how much information was available in and around the building.
  • I love this place. Fun educational place to take the children for a family outing. Great history about Auburn. Paid $8.00 for parking.
  • The museum is very small and dated (exhibits and films seem to be from the 80s), but the information is good. My favorite parts were the replica of the slave ship hold and the old drug store. It's worth a stop if you're in the MLK Jr national site area and have an extra hour or so, but maybe not worth going out of your way to see.
  • The history about Atlanta in thw afRican American community is very informative and refreshing
