A gathering place for
people of all ages


Permanent Collection

The Atlanta Museum is located at 112 SW Arch Street (Old Route 66) in downtown Atlanta.  The mission of the Museum is to tell the story of Atlanta.  To do so, the Museum collects, catalogs, preserves and exhibits artifacts from Atlanta's history.  The artifacts are organized into a set of six "collections"  that comprise the Museum's Permanent Collection.  Because there are many more objects and artifacts in each collection than can be displayed at the same time, the Museum organizes both permanent and rotating exhibits from items in the Museum's permanent holdings.  Permanent exhibits--which do not change--show how Atlanta came to be and has continued to develop over the years.  Rotating exhibits are special exhibits that change periodically and are meant to enhance or illuminate the story contained in the permanent exhibits.
