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!

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!
