This is an excellent and educational way to spend an afternoon while in Atlanta: there is a lot of historically accurate information in the displays (and some rare artefacts as well), and the Center provides a lot of perspective with reference to Civil and Human Rights.
Anyone with time to spare in Atlanta should take the time to visit the museum and site. It’s a short walk between MLK birthplace, tomb, Ebenezer Church and the small, but very informative, free museum.
The Atlanta Botanical Garden is a must see for anyone who enjoys the beauty of nature. The gardens are spread over a large area, through the winding shady paths, to open vistas. There are seasonal changes as well as seasonal activities.
This Theater makes whatever ticket you buy worth double the price. The history and architecture alone are worth the trip. Even the high seats, although farther away from the stage, give you a great view of the beautiful layout and remarkable construction craftsmanship almost impossible to find today.
There is something for everybody from babies to grandparents. The aquarium is divided into sections so you can choose the least crowded and start there. You can go at your own speed and spend as little or as much time at each exhibit as you wish.
