Description

Atlanta History Center is located on 33 acres of land in Atlanta’s trendy Buckhead neighborhood and aims to explore Georgia’s past through comprehensive exhibits, historic homes, miles of gardens and trails. The center’s main facility is the Atlanta History Museum, which displays exhibits on the history of the area, from Native American culture to life in the south of the last century.

Next to the museum is the Swan House, built in 1928. As the name suggests, at least one swan (motif) is said to be drawn in each room. Outside the house there is a path into the swan forest, lined with beautiful native plants of Georgia. Nearby, you can also see how the other half lives in the Smith Family Farm, which was built in the mid-1800s. For those who love to read, however, we recommend visiting Margaret Mitchellhaus (Margaret Mitchellhaus), where the writer wrote the Pulitzer Prize-winning work “Gone with the Wind”.

Many travelers say this hotel’s attraction isn’t just the reason for admission. However, allow enough time to visit the downtown building. Some travelers say there are many attractions here, so they plan to stay here for at least three hours.

Tickets can enter all downtown attractions and can use the gift shop, coffee shop and two restaurants and other facilities: adults $ 23.41, seniors and students $ 19.60, children 4-12 $ 9.80. If you arrive by car, there is free parking in the historic center. You can also take bus 110 southbound and get off at Sardis Way NW stop a few blocks east of the station. Opening hours vary by building, but the Atlanta History Center is open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 to 17:30.
