A world of African-American history--right in your own backyard. – How Sweet It Is
The APEX, which stands for African American Panoramic Experience Museum, is dedicated to African-American artists and their history in Atlanta and throughout the world. Visitors can check out the exhibitions of African-American artists, watch colorful videos, walk through the interactive Hall of Achievement and learn from knowledgeable tour guides. History abounds outside, as well, as the museum is located on Atlanta's Auburn Avenue, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s childhood address. The famous avenue's been the hub of minority business, education and religion for over a century.
The Bigger Picture
In addition to local color, the museum has a magnificent collection of South African art in the main showroom. Once you've basked in all of the paintings and masks, you enter "What's The Big Idea," an exhibit looking at the contributions African Americans have made to the world. Other displays, a gift shop and knowledgeable tour guides help make the Apex experience complete.
