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.
