  • This was a real treat and highly recommend a visit here. We only had 1 hour 15 minutes so had to breeze through some of the items but time well spent. There is an exhibit that recreates what it would ...  more »

  • 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.
  • Fantastic and emotionally powerful museum that provides interesting and engaging ways to learn more about Civil and Human Rights. It can get a little busy with school tours, but it doesn't detract from the experience. There is a single audio exhibit that lasts 1:40 seconds, be prepared for lives (they move quickly). The audio exhibit can be disturbing, and is limited to 13+ years old. Suggest you get your ticket before arriving, outdoor lines can be long and aren't entirely covered from the elements. Overall an lovely, thought provoking museum.
  • The museum is incredibly organized and visually stunning. It is incredible how much is interactive. Whoever curates this museum is awesome. As far as subject matter, obviously it is intense. This museum does a great job capturing so many stories and people. You cannot help but walk away with a deeper understanding of civil rights conflict.
  • A truly visceral experience - a stark look into a very important time in U.S. history. This museum takes you on a journey - the architecture moves you through the museum as if you were on a passage through time. From the audio experiences, to the quiet spaces built for contemplation, to the rooms filled for the specific intent of sensory overload, to the ending view of the Atlanta Skyline, which energizes one for the future and to speak out against injustice and push for change. Excellent museum! Worth every penny!
  • Oooo! This museum is awesome! There's a wealth of history from new and old. I suggest at least 2 days, otherwise you will be overwhelmed. There are 4 floors filled with excellent tidbits that you've never known. Start at the basement and then go up. It goes from old to innovative. You will be impressed.
