If I could rate this center beyond a score of 5, I'd give it a 100! This museum does a tremendous job of connecting the emotions of the Civil Rights to basic Human Rights. I spent hours learning. When you arrive, you cannot miss the...More

Be prepared to become sombered, humbled, enraged, upset, uplifted, and deeply, incredibly moved...to tears. A must do...the counter. It is an experience that will open your eyes, horrify you, and impact you for the rest of your life.

A stark reminder of the troubled history of Atlanta and the southern states of the USA. Clearly illustrated are some of the worst and the best traits of human nature. How hope and dogged determination overcame prejudice and an optimistic look at what lies ahead.

This was my second visit to the center. The first floor is devoted to MLK’s personal papers; this exhibit rotates every three months. To read his words is very moving. The second floor, which is the entrance, is devoted to the Civil Rights movement. I...More

Hearing about segregation is one thing but experiencing it is something else. The lunch counter experience is intense. The stories are moving. It's not a huge museum but it has a huge message. Get the City Pass if you plan to do multiple attractions.

Right beside the World of Coca Cola stands this far more serious museum. The museum is divided in three areas: the lower floor hosts temporary exhibitions. The first and main floor concentrates on the fights for Civil Rights by African-Americans and segregation and racism over...More

This fantastic museum is really a must. It is well curated, the displays are informative, and emotional. The subject matter is serious, but the overall feeling is optimistic. We really didn't know what to expect, and we are so glad that we came. Anyone and...More

If you cannot find a hotel that is pet-friendly, I would recommend looking into an AirBnB. There are plenty of options available in the Atlanta area. We stayed at one during our trip and it was wonderful!

I was there for 2 1/2 hours. I could have spent a bit more time however I was on a schedule. To be safe I would say 3 hours would be good.
