Michael C. Carlos Museum - Review

The museum has been slowly but steadily building up a valuable collection of ancient art from all over the world - Egypt, Greece, Rome, the Near East, Africa and the Ancient Americas. 16,000 items have been collected over nealy a century and a half so far, and this continues to grow.

The star attractions include human and animal mummies from Ancient Egypt, finest existing portrait of the Roman Emperor Tiberius, a depiction of Terpsichore and a headless statue of Venus. There’s a great focus on Greek and Roman art.

If you’re a history buff, or even have some knowledge of the ancient cultures, viewing all these exhibits is a transformative experience. The museums small size makes every exhibit that mush more intense and intimate.

  • This wonderful museum seems quite small but the maze of rooms goes on and on. Each are filled with a stunning variety of objects expertly displayed and catalogued. Almost all items on display are artifacts (I didn't see any paintings) with the main attractions being Greek, Roman, and Egyptian. There is also an impressively large display of central and South American pottery, many with human and animal faces. Overall a highly recommended place I'd visit again.

  • Maybe the MCCM isn’t as big as some museums, but it is a jewel!! A perfectly cut and polished diamond!! I was there yesterday. I was there once before and saw Ramses I before he went home. I was short on time so my goal was the see the Divine Feline exhibit and to revisit the permanent collection. I’ll see the rest of the museum next time. The Divine Feline exhibit, from the Brooklyn Museum was extremely good; well chosen pieces, displayed magnificently! The permanent collection was indescribably awesome; beautifully laid out, well lighted, and worth a trip to Atlanta! I was able to observe two docents, each with a group of school children. Their knowledge of Ancient Egypt, and of the collection was impeccable!! All the people working there that I came into contact with were so kind, polite, friendly, helpful!! I especially enjoyed meeting Brent in the bookstore/gift shop!!

  • Incredible! Small venue, great docents. Just the right size to tackle in a few hours to get your museum fix!

  • My visit was initially based on a school assignment. However, as I began walking through the museum, I almost completely forgot about my assignment. I will definitely be returning when I have more time to venture and explore.

  • A hidden gem! A very in-depth collection of artifacts from a variety of ancient civilizations. Great opportunity for anyone who is interested in learning more about or introducing their children to history. Highly suggest the weekend, less traffic and some free parking available.
