  • This is a fabulous gem in the midst of a lovely campus! Wander through other times and learn about other peoples, be transported to Egypt, and enjoy! Look into their special attractions.  more »

  • Beautiful museum. The Native American and Egyptian exhibits are stellar. Spent about 2-3 hours here for a $8 admission which has been well worth it. The only disappointment was that they removed the crocodile artifacts. Only con is they need better signage to locate the museum.
  • Wonderful museum; the artifacts are priceless and very intriguing. I even went on a guided tour, which was also informative. Since the museum is apart of Emory, I got to go outside and eat on the campus itself. It's beautiful there, inside and out.
