I remember going here when I was a kid and I can't wait to take my kids to the museum when they get old enough to appreciate it. Who needs to go to Egypt: you've got mummies right here!

This is a great little gem in town. Take the guided tour, it's really relaxing & educational. My 8 year old daughter loves this place & my son toured the whole collection while doing a Lost Wax Casting Summer Camp there. Way cool!

Very impressive collection of ancient Egyptain and Greek art as well as African art. The bookstore has some really great coffee table books as well as scholarly works by Emory faculty. A well kept secret that should be told!!

The museum is small but full of very interesting artifacts from South America and Europe. We spent an entire afternoon there and learnt quite a few things about South America that we never knew about. Very Educational for adults and kids alike.

This is a well appointed little museum on the Emory Campus. There is a donation to get in. Lots of antiquities if you like that sort of thing. If you go, go in the summer. Otherwise there is no place to park. Or you can...More

They have super exhibits, and nestled in Emory University's gorgeous campus. Nice quiet place that is never crowded. I have seen some truly spectacular exhibits there and the intimacy and quality was a perfect setting.
