Michael C. Carlos Museum Review

Housing a permanent collection of more than 16,000 objects, this excellent museum, designed by the architect Michael Graves, exhibits artifacts from Egypt, Greece, Rome, the Near East, the Americas, and Africa. European and American prints and drawings cover the Middle Ages through the 20th century. The gift shop sells rare art books, jewelry, and art-focused items for children. The museum's Caffe Antico is a good lunch spot.

    Excellent small museum

    A first-rate small museum on the Emory University campus, with a worthwhile collection of sculpture and artifacts from Egypt, Africa, Greece, Rome, India, and Central/South America. The admission amount is also only a suggested amount. A lengthy bus ride from any MARTA stop, and a little hard to find once you reach campus, but well worth the trek and search.
