The Tubman Museum, formerly known as the "Tubman African American Museum", is located in Macon, Georgia, USA.[1] It is located in the city's museum district near the Georgia Music Hall of Fame and Georgia Sports Hall of Fame.

Founded in 1981, this 8,500-square-foot (790 m2) museum is dedicated toward preserving and displaying African American art, history, and culture. It also offers an array of exhibitions, programs, and publications geared to adults, families, and students and teachers in grades K-12 and college. There are classes offered in dancing, drama, drumming, photography, and visual art that are focused on African American culture.

The museum is also in the process of building a new 49,000-square-foot (4,600 m2) museum, which is scheduled to open in Macon in June 2015.[2][3]
