The Mission of the Tubman Museum is to educate people about African American art, history & culture.

The Tubman African American Museum evolved from an idea planted in Macon, to an internationally recognized Museum. All the while the grass-roots nature of the Museum remained intact. The Museum now houses fourteen galleries including the world class Noel Collection of African Art. This collection includes 2,000-year-old Nok figures, beaded Yoruba wall panels, and Benin bronzes. Other galleries housed in the Museum are devoted to a range of aspects of black American life. From the cuisine of Africa and America in the Soul on Rice Gallery to the Local History Gallery to the Military Leaders Gallery, the Museum has sought to preserve the turbulent but triumphant experience of blacks in America. The Tubman is now the Southeastern venue for many traveling exhibitions that would usually display in prominent venues in large metropolitan areas.

Over the years, the Museum has taken on a leadership role in community involvement. From the Tubman Children in the Arts Classes to the Pan African Festival of Georgia, the Tubman partners with the community to fulfill its mission: the education of all people about African American art, history and culture. The Museum is committed to educating people in innovative and important ways. Over 65,000 guests from all over the world visit the Museum each year to discover, learn and experience the saga of resilience and rejoicing of Africans in America.
