Fine range of works from the greek Bronze Age through the roman period; well displayed and documented; not overwhelming and great for teaching.

The Carlos Museum is a beautiful Michael Graves building on the main quadrangle of Emory University. The setting is appropriate to the exquisite treasures the museum houses. While most visitors are awed by the fabulous ancient Egyptian collection, there are also wonderful galleries of classical, African, and Asian art. Atlanta's best-kept secret!

Pros: great Bookstore, Not Crowded, Friendly staff

Cons: Hard to find, hard to park weekdays

.

The collections, whether Egyptian, Classical, African, American or works on paper, are superbly installed. The Classical galleries display Greek and Roman art that would be the pride of any museum. Anywhere.

. . . in Atlanta that draws international scholars with its treasures. If you haven't been there, go! Weekends are best when parking is easier.

What an enchanting place! The building itself is a gem-- wander through the intimate galleries and remember to enjoy the architecture. The collections are among the best I've seen. This museum is a wonderful tribute to ancient culture in a city often criticized for failing to preserve historic assets. Step into the Carlos and be transported thousands of years and millions of miles!

The Carlos museum is simply my favorite. Especially the Egypt exhibit; the care that went into the presentation of each piece is quite evident. With each visit my artistic appreciation is only broadened! The Michael C. Carlos Museum is truly an Atlanta treasure.

The Carlos is a splendid little jewel for the city of Atlanta. Everything is top-notch: the collections, the atmosphere, the staff ... I hosted an event there last year and it was a phenomenal success.

Egyptian and Classical archeology in the Deep South--what a pleasure! In addition to exhibits that explain clearly each item, the lectures are excellent: top scholars speak and answer questions. Worth joining and staying a member. LGZ
