The Black History museum nestled near downtown Thomasville took home a prestigious award during a museum convention on 
Monday.

The High Museum of Art will present the exhibit “Salvador Dali: The Late Work” through Jan. 2, including this work from 1962 entitled “Fifty Abstract Paintings Which as Seen from Two Yards Change into Three Lenins Masquerading as Chinese and as Seen from Six Yards Appear as the Head of a Royal Bengal Tiger.”

More than 130 museums were placed in the same category for honorable mention and the owner Jack Hadley
won second place.

The award was given by the Georgia Association of Museum and Gallery.

"To me just to be measured against Jimmy Carter's museum ... I mean it's exciting," said museum owner Jack Hadley.

Hadley said he has more than three-thousand artifacts in his museum.
