The museum has a wonderful exhibit of Georgia artists. Good exhibit on Harriet Tubman and a good video of Otis Redding. It even has hidden surprises such as Little Richard's piano! Support this museum!

We enjoyed learning about Harriet Tubman and other historical locals from Macon, GA. While we were there we also enjoyed a wonderful display on Otis Redding. They even had Little Richard's piano! The local artist gallery was amazing.
