The Center for Civil and Human Rights - Atlanta

Named the “Best Museum in Atlanta” by USA Today’s 10Best.com, the Center for Civil and Human Rights is Atlanta’s newest, must-see cultural destination. Award-winning architecture and exhibitions connect the American Civil Rights Movement to the Global Human Rights Movements through touch-screen technology, powerful videos, music, original recordings and stories of courage. Sit at an interactive lunch counter and experience what heroic protestors braved; stand face-to-face with Human Rights champions; and witness items that changed history: Dr. King’s personal papers. A powerful and uplifting journey providing an understanding of the role each person can play in helping to protect the rights of all people..

  • Size: It typically takes around 90 minutes to explore the three main galleries' exhibits of historic documents, artifacts, and interactive activities.
  • The Building: a collaborative design by The Freelon Group's Phil Freelon—Obama appointee to the National Commission of Fine Arts and recipient of the Thomas Jefferson Award for Public Architecture—and Atlanta-based HOK
  • Exhibitions: There is a civil rights exhibition created by George C. Wolfe, a respected Broadway director and writer whose résumé includes Tony Award–winning sensations Bring in Da Noise, Bring in Da Funk and Angels in America. The human rights gallery was curated by Jill Savitt, who serves as a special advisor at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. The Center’s unique and interactive exhibitions were designed by David Rockwell and Rockwell Group.
  • Eye Catcher: 34-foot-tall outdoor water sculpture by artist Larry Kirkland inscribed with quotes by Nelson Mandela and Margaret Mead

This is an exceptionally well designed and fascinating museum. Their use of historical video and audio footage is powerful and moving. The decision to integrate the museum into broader global human rights issues works exceptionally well. I thought I knew a lot about the civil rights movement in the US, I had no idea!

This Museum is a must visit when in Atlanta. It's entertaining but also it's though provoking and it even might move you to tears. With interactive exhibits, films and music, you'll really learn a lot about the South's civil and human rights history and struggle.
