“Swan House and Garden”
Reviewed December 11, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful - we loved the small trails surrounding the Swan House. There is a Restaurant where we had a coffee. The food looked fantastic and it was crowded.

“See Atlanta they way they want you to see it...”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

As a fourth generation resident who's been away from the city for 30 years, an afternoon spend in the History Center was interesting, mostly for the perspective it showed on how Atlanta has written it's history. It's not exactly how it happened, though there are many nostalgic artifacts to bring back your own memories if you care to take the time. It's been a great town for over 100 years --- visit and enjoy.

Thank you for your review of the Atlanta History Center. We are pleased you enjoyed spending time with us. Your review suggested we have "skewed" history. Our curators and historians take great pride in exhibiting history in an accurate and engaging manner. I do hope you will come and visit us again soon.

“Best Civil War Exhibit”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

We really enjoyed this fantastic history center. The only problem we didn't allow enough time to spend exploring the Center. We will return on our next visit to Atlanta.

“History”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

If you are a civil war buff, see this place. Not large,a little off the beaten path, (located in a wealthy part of town), but very interesting and worth it.
