The Michael C. Carlos Museum is one of the oldest art museums in Georgia, starting its life in 1876 as Emory College Museum. Located in Atlanta’s historic quadrangle of Emory University's main campus, the museum fulfills its goal to provide visitors with an insight into the cultures of the world’s art and history through more than 17,000 art objects from ancient Egypt, the Near East, Africa, Greece, Rome, Asia and the ancient Americas.
The collections are located in a beautiful building designed by the notable architect Michael Graves. The museum's permanent Egyptian collection was enriched in 1999 with the 145 works from Niagara Falls Museum and includes the ancient elaborately decorated coffins and mummies. In addition to exhibitions, permanent and temporary, the Museum offers educational programming, lectures, workshops, symposia, performances and festivals. It operates a conservation center and teaching laboratory and brings history, art and archaeology to Georgia children through Art Odyssey, its outreach program.
