Atlanta History Center reopening indoor exhibitions this week

The Atlanta History Center will reopen its indoor exhibitions this week at its Buckhead location, marking the first time the center will be open to the public since it closed March 13 due to the pandemic, according to a news release.  

Like many venues, capacity limitations will be enforced through timed ticket blocks. Guests and staff will be required to wear face coverings in all indoor locations. Historic houses, including the Swan House mansion, will reopen with limited capacities to accommodate social distancing. 

“We’re committed to doing all we can to keep our guests and staff as safe as possible, while getting back to our mission of connecting people, history, and culture in person,” CEO and President Sheffield Hale said in a statement. “For those who are not yet comfortable coming out to our campus, we will continue to offer digital experiences.”

Earlier this month, the venue reopened its 33-acre Goizueta Gardens, which showcase an array of landscapes and rare plants, according to the release. 

The venue also changed its hours to 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday. The museum will be closed Monday, according to the release. Ticket sales end at 3 p.m. daily. Atlanta History Center members will have an exclusive ticket reserve block from 9 to 9:30 a.m. Visitors are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance. 

Guests can visit atlantahistorycenter.com or call 404-814-4000 for ticketing and additional information.
