Family-friendly

In June 2014, the $68-million National Center for Civil and Human Rights welcomed its first visitors to a landmark downtown building designed by Phil Freelon. Emotional exhibits include one by Tony award­–winning playwright George C. Wolf about the American Civil Rights movement, in which visitors pull up stools at a mock lunch counter and imagine the pain faced by peaceful protestors while their seats rattle from fictional kicks and their headphones echo with abuse. The 43,000-square-foot facility is also home to the Morehouse College Martin Luther King, Jr. Collection and rotating exhibits that trace the history of various human rights struggles.
