  • Great museum with a strong message which is a must see in Atlanta. When you have been there then also visit the Martin Luther King jr. exhibition etc. in Sweet Auburn. 
  • This is an excellent and educational way to spend an afternoon while in Atlanta: there is a lot of historically accurate information in the displays (and some rare artefacts as well), and the Center p...  more »
  • The center for civil and human rights is a wonderful new museum in the Atlanta area. The information is complete and heart wrenching. We were there almost 3 hours. I recommend to anyone.

  • An amazing and thought provoking experience. As a Brit visiting Atlanta, this was a real education as to the struggles in the '50s and '60s for a large part of the population to achieve what we all consider to be basic human rights. The room detailing current civil rights struggles was also most enlightening.
  • A powerful look at the past and present of civil and human rights. My one beef with the NCCHR is that it doesn't strive to give a balanced perspective on the 60's Civil Rights movement in particular—it glorifies the gains made in that era while ignoring the reality of the time and the future that transpired. Malcolm X, white flight, crack cocaine...all missing. This is a museum that shows us what we can be, but it is most certainly not a history museum.
  • Wonderful experience!! I would recommend this to anyone. My boyfriend and I went in the morning so it wasn't really crowded at all. Once we made it through all the exhibits we decided to go back through and we still saw things we missed the first time through.
  • The Center is an interactive, immersive experience of the nation's fight for civil rights, and mankind's continued struggle for human rights. The Center has a vital story to tell about us all; it shares it with brave elegance. It is Atlanta's landmark exhibit for the world -- both for its visual elegance and inspirational content. The Center's inaugural exhibition is called Rolls Down Like Water, a biblically-inspired quote from Martin Luther King, Jr.. This exhibit is, however, far more than just the story of one man; it captures the many stories behind the brave fight for equality in The American Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s -- from the brave, young teens called the Freedom Riders to the 253,000 that peacefully assembled for the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedoms to the many heroic, and not so heroic, politicians and figures of power & influence. Be prepared to be both infuriated and inspired by these many stories.
  • Truly an incredible and moving experience. Should not be missed. Intensely poignant given the recent election.
