If you're interested in news or current affairs you have to come to CNN center. Here is the home of the original 24 hour news channel and it's a joy to see and hear all about the beginning of this channel and then appreciate the global reach it has today. Well worth a visit

Never in my life did I think, even when I was booking my trip, that the CNN studios was in Atlanta and that I would go there and see where all the actions of the biggest News network in the world take place, it was bigger that I ever imagined possible. the very first moment I stepped in there with...

My husband and I toured the CNN Center back in March and had a great time. We learned a lot about what goes on in the news world. Great place to take the whole family.

I love the CNN Center. Lots of places to eat and you can go on a tour of the facility. Lots of walking though.

This is obviously a big business for CNN. They have the tours, they take the tour and end it inside the gift shop. They have a huge food court. You get to get your picture taken against a green screen, and you can buy that picture. And the tour isn't cheap. You have to go through security screening, sort of... More

While our tour guide was great and everything was well-executed, I got the feeling that CNN didn't really care that much to have us there. Tourists were a favor or inconvenience. It wasn't as interactive as I had hoped. You can't take any pictures. They have some cool opportunities especially for education for the kids, but they didn't take any... More

We were disappointed with the short tour time. It was certainly not worth the money we spent to take the tour and the escalator which was one of the prime attractions broke down and we were unable to take it. Our tour guide was uninspiring.

My wife and I were in Atlanta for a weekend and thought "wouldn't it be fun to tour CNN. We did have a few things that were interesting & informative, but over all it was boring and not worthwhile. It is $15. per person plus another $15. which was cheap for parking and that was only 3 hours. If I... More
