Centennial Olympic Games Museum Jennifer Clift HIST 2112 Fall 08 11/12/2008 One of my favorite sites to visit in Atlanta has always been the Atlanta History Center. The layers throughout the museum create a unique, diverse experience. For guests visiting Atlanta it is a great way to learn about Atlanta’s history from a “textbook” point of view as well as an interactive, current point of view. Ever since I’ve been going to the museum they have had two exhibits that I can still enjoy and learn from, though I’ve seen them many times. Those include Turning Point: The American Civil War and Metropolitan Frontiers . A recent addition to these permanent exhibits is the Centennial Olympic Games Museum . I chose to write my paper on the Centennial Olympic Games Museum because it was the exhibit I was least familiar with. My favorite part about the museum has always been their exhibits located out of the museum: gorgeous gardens, the Tullie Smith farm, and the Swan House. However, what keeps me going back to the museum are the exhibits that aren’t permanent. They are always very interesting and detailed, and I always try to make it before each new exhibit is gone! Currently they have an exhibit about Jim Henson and his works called Jim Henson’s Fantastic World . Last year they had a Ben Franklin exhibit, which I definitely made sure to see! Ben Franklin has always been one of my “historical heroes”. The exhibit was very detailed and interactive and taught me a lot of interesting things about his life, works, and legacy. 2

On top of it’s fascinating exhibits the Atlanta History Center hosts many events to which it has dozens of brochures about, as well as an actual quarterly newsletter called ‘Connections’.
