Now Open | National Center for Civil and Human Rights

By Connect Staff, July 31, 2014

In June 2014, Atlanta celebrated one of the city’s most anticipated openings of the year: the National Center for Civil and Human Rights. The new museum focuses on the American Civil Rights Movement during the 1950s and ’60s and its effect on today’s global human rights movements.

The 43,000-sq.-ft. center takes up a full city block in downtown Atlanta near Centennial Olympic Park. Meeting facilities include the 2,500-sq.-ft. event room that accommodates dinners, lectures and receptions. It has pre-function space, and its rental grants attendees access to the Morehouse College Martin Luther King Jr. Papers Collection, a rotating exhibit of King’s personal items and papers.

The museum’s lobby can host lectures of up to 150, and the entire facility can be rented for up to 1,000 guests. Wolfgang Puck provides in-house catering. The center is within walking distance of a number of downtown hotels, such as Hyatt Regency Atlanta, Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Hilton Atlanta, DoubleTree by Hilton Atlanta Downtown and Westin Peachtree Plaza, and is a 10-minute walk from two MARTA transit stations.
