Race & Psychology Museum Tour

Visitors attending the Race & Psychology Museum Tour.

Explore the relationship between race and the history of psychology on a guided tour of the National Museum of Psychology.

Visit the Cummings Center for the History of Psychology for our Race & Psychology Museum Tour! This tour recontextualizes the National Museum of Psychology by exploring the relationship between psychological science and systems of racial injustice. Guests examine the power of psychology to both reinforce and tear down racist policies and belief systems, including histories of diagnosis, institutionalization, intelligence testing, and a discussion of the American Psychological Association’s recent Apology to People of Color.

In relation to these topics, the tour highlights the important contributions of psychologists of color throughout the history of psychology. The guided tour includes a digital packet of supplementary photos and archival documents, as well as opportunities for guests to try out interactive recreations of historic intelligence and reaction time tests.

The tour takes approximately 60 minutes. Guests are encouraged to arrive early or stay after the tour to explore
