10BEST Says

Museums: The Atlanta History Center has a wide array of exhibits. Visitors can tour the Swan House, located on the museum's grounds. The Atlanta History Center operates the Margaret Mitchell House, which is located on Peachtree Street. While at the museum, explore the gorgeous gardens or meander at the Signature Exhibitions that include a Civil War exhibit, Centennial Olympic Games Museum, a folk arts exhibit and an exhibit featuring Bobby Jones. Temporary exhibitions and traveling exhibitions provide visitors with a variety of new pieces to see and ideas to explore.

History Museums: This center, located on 33 acres wooded and landscaped grounds, offers many opportunities to learn about Georgia's unique history, both indoors and out. On the property is the 1928 Swan House, one of Atlanta's most elegant landmarks, and the Tullie Smith Farm, which survived Sherman's march through the city in 1864. Leave time to explore the museum, which chronicles the development of the area since pioneer times.
