The Millennium Gate Museum
Housed inside a 100-foot-tall monumental arch, The Millennium Gate Museum is a dramatic reminder of Atlanta's oft-forgotten nickname, "The Gate City." Planted in the midst of bustling Atlantic Station in Midtown, the museum offers visitors a chance to slow down and be reminded of the rich history of their fair city. Through displays of artifacts and artwork, its exhibits preserve Atlanta's cultural heritage and broadcast its significance to the rest of the world.
