What travellers are saying
- If you have never been to the Atlanta Botanical Garden, this would be a great time to visit while the Origami in the Garden exhibit is still there (through mid-October, 2022).
Origami in the Garden is an amazing exhibit of sculptures created by Kevin and Jennifer Box and inspired by origami designs created by world-renowned origami artists. All of the sculptures are made out of metal and most of them are either cast from the origami paper figure, or fabricated out of welded steel to represent an enlarged version of the original origami figure. If you visit the garden to see this show, make sure you don't miss the "Inside Out" exhibit in the Gardenhouse (next to the restaurant). In this exhibit are some mind boggling examples of origami designs made out of a single, square piece of paper.
Definitely recommended for the entire family!Written 15 May 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Best Aquarium I have every went to, prices are well justified by the quality shows with dolphins and sea linons as well as the awsome shark viewing area.Written 14 May 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Seeing MLK's house and neighbourhood was quite a moving experience. We parked in one of the nearby streets and strolled to the house. The whole area is steeped in history and it did not require much effort to be able to imagine MLK's life and times.Written 1 May 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- An absolutely brilliant museum that gives you interactive, impactful, and digestible accounts of Civil and Human Rights. Absolutely a must-see to understand the priveledges some have held throughout the years, and the fight others have had to face for too many years. It really is an important place.Written 16 May 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- A total Gem! The grounds are very expansive with something for everyone including walking/biking trails, lake views, and athletic fields. A perfect place for a picnic or to layout with a book. We learned that they offer weekend markets, classes, volunteer opportunities, and tours. It seems like such a labor of love for those who work and recreate there. Very special!Written 16 May 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Before traveling to ATL for a weekend with our kids (3 & 6), we bought tickets without reading the reviews; and then regretted the purchase because so many reviews were off putting. We even thought about scrapping it and losing our money. But, our day plans left us with a gap and we decided to try it. So glad we did. It was great for young kids with no expectations and a blossoming appreciation of Legos. It is not Legoland like the parks in CA and FL, and if you’ve been to those, this will be a let down. But, it’s a fun 1-2 hours of Lego themed experiences with two rides, a building/race track area, a climbing area, a virtual reality experience and an awesome city display of Atlanta and the surrounding area. Our kids loved it. I’m glad we gave it a shot.Written 1 May 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- My wife and I have been here 3 or 4 times and it's like a whole new experience every time. What a great way to spend your day.
First of all military and disabled veterans are free to get in, which is great!
Before I begin with the attractions/features I will mention they have several bathrooms scattered all over the complex. There is an eatery on-site and also a coffee ship, both on which are excellent. The eatery is Souper Jenny's and they have soups, leafy salads, fruit salads, pasta salads, chili, sandwiches, drinks, and food is excellent (try the chili, but AFTER you walk around! 🙃). The coffee shop has very good coffee and similar drinks. Highly recommend both.
Now onto the museum. I could write several thousand words about this place but I'll try to be brief, but like a said, you will be hard pressed to see the whole set up in one day, so plan ahead.
The museum is actually a large ~40 acre site almost in the heart of Buckhead, on West Paces Ferry Road very close to Peachtree Road. There are numerous buildings to visit, with the Cyclorama being a main attraction in one of the buildings. The Cylorama is a huge 360° "mural" that you walk around inside to view. It portrays the Battle of Atlanta during the Civil War. This mural is massive and spectacular.
There are numerous exhibits throughout the museum grounds, depicting numerous events and the many faceted and fascinating history of Atlanta and the metro area.
Another main focal point is the Schulze-Inman house, where the original owners lived before donating the property to the City of Atlanta.
There is ample parking both off West Paces Ferry and also a large parking area and deck off Andrew's Road. Parking has been free whenever we visited.
This place is a must see and a great place to come on a date, with kids or friends or groups. We've been several times and haven't seen everything yet. Next trip we are planning to come early morning and just plan on staying all day and having our lunch there. See the main page for hours.
100% enjoy and 100% recommend, one of our favorite places to visit in Atlanta.Written 31 March 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- We enjoyed the time there. The guide was very knowledgeable. The artifacts were interesting and we got a few gifts to share.Written 9 May 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Very large sports and concert arena venue that is great to visit. Had the pleasure of seeing the Redskins vs Falcons game and had a most exciting time. Many levels and various food stands are available. Will definitely return.Written 11 January 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- San Diego no longer has Pandas, leaving just 3 zoos in the U.S. that do: DC, Memphis, & Atlanta. That fact alone makes Zoo Atlanta pretty unique & worth a visit if you haven’t seen the loveable fluff balls in person. Pleasantly surprised that there are 4 of them, & you’re only a sheet of glass away from a few of them.
My wife heard a volunteer say the younger twins could be heading back to China any day now & the older pair will eventually be returned as well. So, if you’re thinking about it, go do it while you can.
The rest of the zoo is nice enough but nothing else is all that special/memorable compared to other zoosWritten 25 April 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Really cool place with a lot of interactive games and stations. Even played a little quaterback. There is fun for the whole family hereWritten 17 April 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- This was our second trip to the ballpark and had a different experience this time. We had a clear plastic bag that we purchase & used in other MLB parks that was slightly larger than the bag dimensions but it was completely clear. The person at the gate was adamant that we could not go in with it. We tried explaining the scenario with the bag but he was more adamant about no. So we turned & starting to walk away and he told us “not to step away and put the plastic bag in our pocket” so we could get in.
Once we got into the park we headed towards our seats in xfinity section. Our seats were amazing and everyone we encountered in there was friendly and helpful. We also had a great interaction with Guest Services.Written 14 May 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- We have taken the ghost tour of the Fox Theater which I highly recommend for visitors and natives alike. Historical information presented in a fun fashion that all ages would enjoy. Interesting to see the "back of the house" and the inner workings.Written 3 April 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- If you're in the area, seeing the work of Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter is worth the hour it takes to view the film and read through the artifacts.Written 14 April 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- We visited the rooftop on a Monday evening with our kids and it was one of the most memorable things we did in Atlanta. They loved playing mini golf and the other boardwalk games. They spent hours playing basketball trying to win stuffed donuts and pineapples as prizes. It allowed my wife and I a chance to sit down, have a few drinks, and check out the view of the city.Written 17 April 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
