Apex museum, in the auburn area of Atlanta GA. The Sunday me and my family visited was a surprise to me. The museum wasn't much to look at from the outside still it was a cultural experience I will forget. Central located off of sweet Auburn just down street from the King center. The display was very educational as well as entertaining. Not to lessen your experience it opens with a video presentation that sets the stage for a history of the African experience in Ga. This is a must see.

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!

My daughter had difficulties accepting who she was as a person as our culture. I took her here. The best experience I could've ever gave her and myself. Thank you for showing us the True KINGS AND QUEENS we are !!!

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!

Nice experience. To be having a 40th ANNIVERSARY coming up they need to improve appearance. If you want ppl to take our story our history serious that place should be immaculate especially in ATLANTA.
