DIRECTIONS TO 100 IVAN ALLEN JR. BLVD

  • The Center for Civil and Human Rights is A TREMENDOUS ACHIEVEMENT, unlike anything this city has ever seen . . . for the rest of my days it will be the first place I take visitors to my city . . . I [FEEL] LIKE THE HEART OF ATLANTA HAS FINALLY FOUND A HOME.

    Chuck Reece Editor-in-Chief of The Bitter Southener
  • The Center's exhibits tell stories in ways that promote empathy and understanding. This fledgling cultural institution has already SUCCEEDED IN EXPANDING ATLANTA'S ETHICAL FOOTPRINT.

  • This stunning museum is a CAN'T MISS Atlanta attraction. My family had just under an hour to experience the museum before it closed but it was AMONG THE MOST POWERFUL HOURS OF MY LIFE.

    Dante M. TripAdvisor Review
  • MY 15 YEAR OLD SON was dragged into this tour by his debate coach. 6 hours later, he returned with a message – "Mom, we have got to go back this weekend!" He and his buddies loved it...a big accomplishment for any museum when it comes to teenage boys.
