Macon - Tubman African American Museum

310 Cherry Street

Mission/History :
Welcome to the Tubman African American Museum website. We are the largest museum in the Southeast dedicated to African American art, history and culture.

The Tubman Museum was named in honor of Harriet Tubman, the courageous African American woman, also known as the "Black Moses", who led hundreds of other slaves to freedom and served as Union spy, scout, and nurse during the Civil War.

Since it's founding in 1981, the Tubman Museum has pursued its mission through the collection, preservation, exhibition and interpretation of works of art and historical artifacts related to the broad sweep of African American history and culture.

Today the museum represents a key educational and cultural resource for Georgia, the Southeast and the entire nation. We offer a wide array of exhibitions, publications, programs and events geared to families, and students and teachers grades K-12 and beyond.

We invite you to learn more about the rich legacy of African American history and culture here at the Tubman Museum. It's more than African history, it's more than American history, it's your history.

Great info and service. The only negative for me was that it was a self-guided tour and I would have loved to have a tour guide to get the extra info instead of reading everything. You need at least two hours to read all the info on both floors, but over all it is a great experience.

For a building that big and an admission price of $10, there is very little to see. The main focus is on wall art with a secondary emphasis on actual exhibits. I'm disappointed that there are not any interactive exhibits and there is a complete lack of regional African crafts, folklore, religion, or customs. I was hoping for an enriching learning experience.

This was a very educational place to visit. I came here with my husband and 2 of our 5 Kid (boys 9 & 13). I enjoyed that it was self guided and we were able to look around on our own. It was informative and had exhibits that explored local history, music, art and culture. My older son struggled with some of the images and exhibits but i explained it was part of his history and that it was ok to be upset but it is important for him to be informed. I liked the walk through history exhibit and the 1000 Miles to Freedom movie. I do wish there was more to look at but they are working on a few things to add to the museum. I can't wait to revisit it.
