  • Exceptionally well done. This center covers civil and human rights up and down the X, Y and Z axis. Plan on spending a solid three hours minimum to take in 75% of the material. There is a lot and no area is "skip over" fluff. Beautifully laid out, this exhibit takes place on two full levels with a partial level in between. Proponent of human rights? This is for you. Opposers to human rights? There are other attractions that will likely focus on your Pleistocene concerns better.
  • The lunch counter experience is a must! This place has 3 floors that are all very unique. This is a great place to take the family or out of town guests. This is an excellent learning experience for everyone!
  • My partner and I went here because we were bored. Once we experienced the exhibits we were both in tears. If you try the lunch counter experience (one of their exhibits) you'll definitely feel how we felt. I cannot express how happy I am that we went to this museum. It is a must-visit for all people of color.
  • A very interesting and sad indictment of our very recent past, this museum was more powerful than I anticipated and thorough too. It included parts of MLK's speeches if never heard as well as modem stories about conflict and inequality in the world. I recommend this museum highly.
  • Everyone must visit The Center. Knowledge is power people. Know your past so you can understand your future 🕉

Where to stay in Atlanta

Most of Atlanta's top hotels cluster in a downtown area with an easy-to-remember name--the Hotel District. The city's political and commercial hub, this area offers quick walking access to most major attractions. Another good area for boutique hotels and rental apartments is the ever-expanding Midtown, with proximity to most of Atlanta's big-name museums and theaters. If you're looking to save some money on accommodations, explore options in the more economical chain hotels outside downtown; from there, you can take the city's public transport to centrally located attractions and activities.
