The city of Atlanta has called herself the “gate city of the south” for well over a century. The state of Georgia also has a magnificent and extraordinary history. It took 8 years to bring to you Atlanta’s very own triumphal arch, housing a world-class boutique museum of Georgia history. Today the Millennium Gate stands proudly in the heart of the city, waiting to be explored for knowledge, art and entertainment. Opened in 2008, the Millennium Gate Museum was built to preserve and interpret Georgia history, art, culture and philanthropic heritage. The museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and a winner of the Palladio Award for design of a public space. The original concept was planned for Washington D.C. by the American Urban Design Foundation, now the National Monuments Foundation.
