Spent about an hour here. Incredibly well done giving the feeling of actually being in the slums of a third world country at the beginning. Very moving experience. Then moving on to 15 replicas of Habitat homes and, tho sparce, a giant leap forward for...More

Helpful. She showed us a slide show and gave us passports which could be stamped. You were able to take a self guided tour. At...More
This is a must see for children and adults

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed touring the Global Village and Discovery Center in Americas Georgia. There is a short film that tells the history and scope of Habitat for Humanity and then you go on a self guided tour of the homes that Habitat...More

I would suggest a visit of at least an hour and be sure to bring your camera! If you haven't visited before be sure to provide more time to visit Americus! Our trip was to visit Andersonville NHP and needed somewhere to stay. The people we met were great in Americus and there was lots to see. Be careful while driving the neighboring roads while approaching Americus as there are lots of police making sure you follow the speed limits.
