My wife and I went to the museum today and we’re both overwhelmed. While the entire museum provides an amazing education on civil rights and atrocities around the world, it is the US civil rights history that will leave you drained. I don’t know how...More

This museum exposes you to the ugly face of racism as well as the beauty of peaceful activism. Not a place for small children or if looking for a “fun” family activity. Can be a raw emotional experience. Would recommend for family with teens. Great...More

The Museum offered many aspects of the 60's. Many artifacts and live speeches played throughout the museum. The most compelling interactive exhibit was sitting at the lunch counter. The Martin Luther King room was solemn and had so much information regarding his funeral and afterwards....More

I've never been to a museum that touched me so deeply especially the lunch counter experience. Bring plenty of tissues.

This was a great experience. The lunch counter was powerful, to feel and hear the sounds and vibrations of the time was so scary. My heart raced as I sat at the counter. This museum presents a powerful presentation of the civil rights movement.

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.
