Named in tribute to the incredible African-American abolitionist and activist Harriet Tubman, the Tubman Museum opened the doors of its latest facility to the public in 2015.  Dedicated to collecting, preserving and promoting African-American art, culture and history, the Tubman Museum, as per its website, has “grown over the years to become the largest institution of its type and a key educational and cultural resource for the entire southeast region.”

As the “largest museum in the nation dedicated to educating people about the Art, History and Culture of African Americans”, the Tubman Museum “fulfills its mission through diverse exhibitions, innovative educational programming, cutting edge technology and a host of special events throughout the year.”  Located at 310 Cherry Street in Macon, Georgia, it was founded in 1981 by Father Richard Keil, a priest at St. Peter Claver Church.
