Apex Museum Reviews & Ratings
On a girl's trip with my mom and last minute we decided to go there. What a marvelous experience. The way was paved on the back of our ancestors. Even had a history lesson. Will definitely visit again.
My boyfriend and I visited this museum. I loved the atmosphere and learning about our African history. The staff was very friendly. We also got to take several selfies. We watched 2 10 minute videos that provided a timeline of the African history. I highly recommend this museum to anyone who wants to learn more about the African history.
Really great place. The reception and guide were great. Very interesting to hear the films on our history and the history of Auburn Avenue.
The staff are all well-spoken and engaging, considering what they are provided. The staff are 5-star; however, the museum could use some much needed updating and maintenance. Such an important piece of history needs to be shown in a proper environment.
APEX Museum is on point in keeping the true history of African people in America alive. If you are a seeker looking for the correct history of African people, then, APEX Museum is what you are looking for. Forget about American racist text book version of Black history. Knowledge is power.
