My mom and I visited on a whim when we were only in Atlanta for a few hours. I’m so glad we went. Beautifully done and connects our nation’s past and present in a global context so well. It was emotional and we both broke...More

Beautifully done with such rich history. The booth where you have to endure the cursing and persecution at the lunch counter was eye opening. It moved us to tears. This exhibit alone spoke volumes! The top floor exhibits about the continued worldwide persecutions was so...More

Visited the Centre and found it to be a superbe collection of history and memorabilia connected to the Civil Rights Movement in the US. The exhibits palpably bring to life the trials and tribulations faced by the affected community spearheaded by Dr. Martin Luther King....More

When I say this is a must-see, it is because I think our country would be changed if everyone had to go through a right-of-passage at this museum first. It is very well organized, accessible, and honest. I learned so much, but also the door...More

This is a relatively small museum but definitely worth vising. For those who didn't live through the civil rights movement, on the first floor it shows haw far we've come, and on the second floor it shows how much we still need to go.

Really good centre, deserving of several hours to see everything. Although the main focus is on Civil Rights, it also portrays other key human rights issues. Easy to access all the areas. So much to consider, think about and to feel. It would be hard...More

This museum makes the viewer think about how far our country has come. Start at the beginning of the museum with old TV sets showing clips of governors, senators and other government officials spouting hate. Then an amazing, interactive demonstration on what it was like...More

As is usually the case with sites in one's hometown, we finally did get to the Center when visitors came to Atlanta from out-of-town. Having lived through so much of the history of the Civil Rights Movement, it was incredible to see that history spectacularly...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.
