About Atlanta History Center, Atlanta

This historic centre preserves quite a rich heritage. It has twelve exhibits six of which are permanent. These include the Centennial Olympic Museum; the Turning Point, an American Civil War Exhibition; Metropolitan Frontiers, Chronicling the expansion of Atlanta; Shaping Tradition, on Southern folk art; Down the Fairway with Bobby Jones, on the history of golf in the USA; and Philip Trammell Shutze: Atlanta Classicist, Connoisseur, and Collector.

The grounds also have a few historic houses including the Tullie Smith House, the Swan House and the Margaret Mitchell House and Museum. It’s a nice visit. At the Smith Farm the there are two guides who’ll remain in historic character as you direct questions at them. And for Hunger Games fans’, there’s even a Capitol tour, because if you’ll remember, the Swan House was used in Catching Fire. Atlanta History Center is one of the attractions in 3 Days in Atlanta itinerary. Must visit this awesome attraction.

  • A superb interactive informative museum-the sections for Atlanta and the Civil War are simply awesome! Well thought of exhibits engage and immerse you - a few hours felt like few minutes! Unfortunately, the houses weren't open today, but we had a tremendous time at the Center. The cafe is also great. Definitely, a must do for visitors to Atlanta!!

  • We really enjoyed the "living history" experience with the actors that told stories in the Gatheround section. Don't let the small size of the exhibit areas fool you - there is a lot to see! And the cafe area has the freshest menu with flavorful soups and salads.

  • Extraordinary collection of artifacts with well- displayed exhibits accompanied by interesting and enlightening text summaries. The Civil War gallery was a fabulous and unique perspective. The culture and history of Atlanta area was most informative. A not to be missed museum for history lovers.

  • I went here on a field trip and although I enjoyed it, my students are academically low, so they didn't understand the terminology being used.

  • Friendly helpful staff. Room is spacious and clean. Lots of area to walk my dog. Totally recommend this hotel.
