    One of the best museums in Atlanta. The design takes you through civil and human rights events thoughtfully. They have benches and chairs that allow you to spend as much time as you would prefer in several sections. Plan to spend at least two hours here at a minimum, and you'll be glad you did.

    This is an absolute must for anyone who lives or is visiting the city. Not like any other museum I have ever been to! The videos immerse you right into the heart of it and helps you to grasp a better understanding of it all. An incredibly moving experience.

    A powerful presentation of human rights history and our present world situation. The staff was excellent. The use of technology, graphics, and tactile learning was so very well done. I am grateful I was able to experience this! An enlightening and excellent opportunity in Atlanta.

    Powerful, memorable, very important. This is one of my favorite museums in Atlanta. The best part for me is the crowd who comes to see the museum with you --- every time I've been there has been someone who has lived through the civil rights movement, we inevitably end up talking, and they give me the best guide through the exhibits that anyone could ask for.

    This place is amazing!! The exhibit, in the segregation section of blacks and white, where they have you sit at a modeled lunch counter is very powerful. I believe the exhibit is a replica from the Greensboro 3 that occurred at a Wool Worth's lunch counter. They have you take a seat and put on headphones and shortly after you hear the lunch counter come to life and very shortly after that you are reliving the extremely inhumane treatment and language that blacks were enduring in that timeframe. The seats even vibrate as you hear the kicking sounds. Definitely an experience! Also, they have quite a few letters, artifacts and etc of Martin Luther King, very interesting materials. Then you have the area which explains the current inhumane working conditions that people in other countries have to endure, so we can have our luxuries from the way the large quantities of flowers are grown and picked for Valentine's day to chocolate, again very eye opening and educational.
