We went to this museum for a reception with a conference. The space is very nice and I really enjoyed learning about the music and history legends from Macon. They had very nice artwork and memorabillia.

This museum is in the other museum that we found on a last minute trip. The Harriet Tubman room was very informative. The African American inventor display was awesome! The museum will continue to develop and we did enjoy the visit.

This museum was not completely what was expected from the web site. There was only a small exhibit about Harriet Tubman while most of the building was centered on other African American people. It would have been interesting to have more about Harriet Tubman's life,...More
