This is a must see in Atlanta. Great location on "Sweet Auburn" street. Convenient to the King District and Trolley. The museum is a hidden treasure and the staff is friendly/full of knowledge. Don't forget to shop in the gift shop for great souvenirs in just the right price range!

Great outing for your older kids a lot of information about the city.. as it was 60 yrs ago.. and from the time before we called the US home. You can ride the train to CNN and make a day of looking around downtown. Great outing for the whole family, If you know someone who lived in Atlanta for over 65 years they can let you know about all the things you see in the APEX Museum.It was great to see all the things saved for the kids and people in the future. I remembered going to the Doctor's office and getting my hair done as a kid just down the street. Great place to visit

Very informative...was very saddened to be reminded how anyone could treat another human being in such a inhumane way.

From Our Editors

Tell us about your museum.

The APEX offers a unique look at history from an African-American perspective. We do not begin our story with slavery, but rather with Africa and its rich splendor and glory. It is important to know that from this rich continent came medicine, math, architecture, science, and much more.

What are some of your unique exhibits that stand out from other museums?

The APEX has recreated scenes from Atlanta's Sweet Auburn, which Fortune Magazine in 1957 called "the richest Negro street in the world." Here you can see a replica of the Yates & Milton drug store, [which was] famous as a gathering place. You can also board the replica of a vintage trolley and watch a video called The Journey, narrated by Ossie Davis, and Sweet Auburn Street of Pride, narrated by Cicely Tyson.

Why is Black History Month important to you?

While Black History Month is important because it brings attention to a very important segment of our community, our theme here at the APEX is, "where every month is Black History Month."

What does being a black business owner mean to you?

Black business ownership is important because it symbolizes the strength and tenacity of a people who have endured hardships and emerged undaunted.

Where do you hope to see your museum and community in the next five years?

The APEX plans to build on its adjoining lot, a 90,000 square-foot facility with a complete "walk-through" [of] history in EPCOT Center fashion.

Why did you decide to work with Groupon again?

I have been so amazed and impressed with the results we have received from our association with Groupon. I did not know what to expect, but have been very pleased with having more than 2400 responses in only six months.

Anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

The APEX...was founded in 1978 by a veteran filmmaker from Philadelphia, Dan Moore, Sr. It was inspired by the life of Morehouse President, Dr. Benjamin E. Mays, and remains a source of information and inspiration.
