Atlantic Station, the neighborhood where the museum is located

"The Millennium Gate Museum tour was very exciting and the guide was excellent as he took us through the historical journey of Ambassador Young and answered all my questions. In the end I learnt about his milestones and the impactful life he lead. My key takeaway from the tour was his father's quote "Don't get mad; get smart". It was a pleasure to take the tour of the museum."

Wonder of the Ancient World

One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World — the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, designed by Phidias, was recreated for the exhibition "The Games: Ancient Olympia to Atlanta to Rio". The statue endured for approximately 800 years before being moved or destroyed under unknown circumstances. Our model is based on the most accurate information available. Visitors to the Gate Museum will experience the majesty of one of the Seven Wonders.

Facilitator for world-class art and history exhibitions

The Gate is also a facilitator for world-class art and history exhibitions which tour venues exclusively across Georgia. In 2014-2015, the museum organized an eight city tour of The Art of Diplomacy: Winston Churchill and the Pursuit of Painting to LaGrange, Sea Island, Columbus, Macon, Atlanta, Rome, Athens, and Savannah.
