National Center for Civil and Human Rights Directions

The National Center for Civil and Human Rights (NCCHR) is in downtown Atlanta next to the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coca-Cola. In addition to exhibits, special events take place here throughout the year.

Transit Options

The NCCHR is about a 12-minute walk away from the Civic Center Station on the red and gold rail lines via Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd.

If any e-scooters are available near the train station, you can rent one to speed up your commute.

Outside the Peachtree Center train station is the Peachtree Center streetcar stop (use the Ellis Street/Peachtree Street East station exit). Pay a separate $1 fee to ride the streetcar to the Centennial Olympic Park stop. From there, walking time is about 8 minutes to the museum. Download the ATL Streetcar app for iOS or Android to purchase tickets in advance or via the vending machine at the streetcar stop.

The streetcar also travels to the Martin Luther King Jr. Historic Site for additional sightseeing.

Bus 51 departs from the North Avenue Station and has a stop next to the museum on Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd. The bus also travels on Marietta Street, Howell Mill and next to Georgia Tech, making this route a convenient option for students or residents who live in West Midtown. You can pay cash (exact change only) to ride the bus or use a Breeze Card. It’s free to ride the bus if you are transferring from a train.
