  • The museum itself is fine, but nothing special. The room on the Native Peoples was quite sparse with only about a dozen artifacts. The fantastic part of this place is the buildings in the back. The Smith Family Farm and Gardens has the farmhouse, live animals, kitchen building, wood shop, blacksmith shop, slave quarters. The Swan House is massive and fun to tour. There is suppose to be a Wood Family Cabin, but we have never found it and there are no signs telling you how to get there.

  • FANTASTIC! We did the tour here a few days ago while on a short visit to Atlanta. Of course we had to get coffees and some lunch before we started our self guided tour at 3.30pm.Lunch here was great by the way! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed everything we saw. First we followed the path out the back to the Swan House and then the Smith Family Farm because those events close at 4pm.Then it was back to inside the museum itself where we had til 5.30pm to see what we wanted.The huge Civil War display was incredible and so were the historical items on show from Atlanta in the 50's, 60's and so on.Thanks to Sierra and Alexis at the help desk. This place is a must to visit!

  • My wife and I did the museum tour while on a short visit to Atlanta recently. Everything we saw was very interesting. The Swan House and Smith Family Farm were amazing. Just 12 bucks a head and worth every cent!

  • What a great education about Atlanta visitors gain here. So well done, they don't sugarcoat things. I really enjoyed the way this museum was put together. So thoughtful. Wonderful experience.

  • Greetings! Shaping Traditions is one of the many excellent exhibitions currently on display at the Atlanta History Center. The Center always takes care to provide in-depth information and artifacts with exhibitions. There’s a coffee shop and a fantastic restaurant on site. The staff is courteous and extraordinarily helpful. The History Center also provides a number of great lectures and book talks throughout the year.
