  • You know you're going to a fun museum when you get your ID checked twice, bags scanned, and car searched. The CDC is a high security free museum that is just a short taxi ride away from a few MARTA st...  more »

  • As a work in the field of microbiology I find these studies fascinating, but I imagined a museum that was a little bigger or with more biosafety level equipment 4 exposed. But I think it was worth the...  more »

  • It is like a private field trip into the world of public heath. The only problem is that, the area is so limited thus obviously some exhibits have been removed to make room for recent additions. I believe much more can be done to transform this place into a best museum for public health in the world. Frankly speaking, for those without a knowledge in the related field, and in the CDC itself, it will likely be very confusing. I do appreciate it because I have read so many books, taken so many courses. For a teenager, I doubt he or she can learn much about the concept it tries to convey.
  • Great exhibits. The Ebola section was quite interesting. FYI - When you enter the premises your vehicle will get searched. Must show Id's to enter museum.
  • Free, well kept and curated museum with 2 floors of exhibits (1 permanent and 1 rotating). Parking was not available at the time of my visit, but free garage parking was available for 3 hours in the shopping area across the street. I wish there had been a gift shop, as I would have liked to buy a souvenir with the CDC logo.
  • I've taken many people to the CDC Museum over the years and everyone has enjoyed it and learned something. They displays are very well done and include information about CDC and its history, public health, and several historic outbreaks. Right now there is an excellent display area about the Ebola outbreak and response. And it is free.
  • Great information explaining the role of the CDC and accomplishments. Very interesting displays. Free parking and admission. Everyone we encountered was helpful and very friendly.

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.
