  • Great tourist/date spot to visit. Love the history and what it represents. A must see if you frequent the city.
  • Full disclosure, not ordinarily much of a museum type person and this museum in particular hasn't got much on display. However, it's size is actually a strength because the docent gave us an amazing tour with really interesting anecdotes about historical and contemporary figures, he even brought us up on the roof! I'd say it's a toss-up, if you can go when it's not busy and you can really engage with the people that run it I would recommend it otherwise I'd probably skip it since Atlanta has so many other great museums.
  • Entrance hard to find. Price seems excessive. But you can enjoy the park without going in the museum. I recommend that.
  • The entire museum is located in the arch, so you can tell at a glance the place isn't very big. If only one person is working (a common occurrence), you may only be allowed to see the lower floor exhibits. It's something to do if you're looking to kill some time at Atlantic Station, but I wouldn't make it a destination.
  • The kid servers here we're too lazy and slow! Check out the Arch but everyone in this neighborhood insults one another.
