American and international visitors can better understand and appreciate the contributions of African-Americans to America by visiting these permanent exhibits at the APEX Museum.
Africa the Untold Story allows visitors to experience the rich history of people of African descent dating back 8,500 years. Learn about the first mathematical calculator and the Pyramids, as well as accomplishments in agriculture, architecture, science, astronomy, philosophy and medicine. Visitors can walk through the "Door of No Return" to learn of the terrible enslavement of great people and hear the stories of triumph like those of Henry "Box" Brown and the captives who gained freedoms through the Underground Railroad.
Sweet Auburn: Street of Pride takes visitors through the history of Auburn Avenue from mid-1800s to the 1960s. Understand how Auburn Avenue, which was once known as the richest African-American street in the world, became a street of influence, power and pride. The exhibit includes a replica of Yates and Milton Drug Store, one of Atlanta's first African-American owned businesses, and the stories of early African-American pioneers in Atlanta.
