The Atlanta History Center is absolutely one of my favorite places in Atlanta. I am currently an intern here at the AHC, but my love for this organization goes back 8 years.

Go here first; bring out of towners too 10/13/2002

There are great 'natural history' museums, and there are great art, or science or other museums. I think this is the best museum I've seen that is just about the local area. It is incredible that you could spend a whole day just learning about the heritage of the south, of Georgia, and Atlanta. This museum includes a view of the city from past to present, starting in the early days when it was just a railroad link, up to today when it is the capital of the southeast with transport, commerce, and a great culutural center. Civil war section is probably the best I've seen. Make sure to go out back and check out the mini-farm, and the beautiful mansion owned by one of the coke founders. Pros: Comprehensive, Varied, Changing Exhibits Cons: Location (no marta), some exhibits worn, more kid stuff more

Educational trip back in time 6/2/2002

As a northerner and relative newcomer to the area, I found the Atlanta History Center to offer a comprehensive history of the area. It's one thing to ""know"" about Atlanta history and another to immerse yourself in the artifacts and stories of the time. The portions on segregation were particularly sobering. more
