Interactive Center for Worldwide Human Rights
The Center for Civil and Human Rights is the newest addition to the Centennial Olympic Park tourism corridor, but it is much more than a museum. While there is certainly an emphasis on the Civil Rights Movement, mostly due to the center's Atlanta location, the center also has exhibits on what's going on in the modern age. The 42,000 square foot facility features artifacts belonging to Martin Luther King, Jr. and multimedia clips on rights abuses of other groups like the LGBTQ, female, immigrant and handicapped populations. Set aside at least two hours to wander.
