The Atlanta History Center is in Buckhead at 130 West Paces Ferry Road NW, closest to the Buckhead MARTA station on the red rail line. It is the future home of the Cyclorama, and the museum also includes a variety of exhibits, gardens, a library and historic homes on display (Swan House and Smith Farm House).
There are two ways to reach the Atlanta History Center on transit:
The easiest commute option is to connect with bus 110, which travels along Peachtree Road from the Arts Center to Buckhead. You can board the bus at just about any point along Peachtree Road, or for the shortest ride, connect with the bus at the Buckhead MARTA station (Peachtree Road exit).
Once on the bus, tell the bus driver that you’d like to exit at West Paces Ferry Road. After exiting the bus, walk west on West Paces Ferry (toward Whole Foods) about 10 minutes to reach the history center (see bus and walking map).
Walking time is approximately 26 minutes from the Buckhead station if you prefer to walk.
- Take the Peachtree Road exit out of the station and use the first stairway or elevator to reach street level.
- Turn right on Peachtree Road
- Walk to West Paces Ferry Road and turn right.
