Visitors on the Race & Psychology 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 new 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.

We’re offering two free, public tour dates in Spring 2023, on February 15th and March 15th from
