The Millennium Gate Museum’s mission is to preserve and interpret Georgia history, art, culture, and philanthropic heritage as well as highlight Georgia’s historical and aesthetic relevance to the United States and to the world. The Gate is a classically styled monumental arch styled after classical Roman arches. It is an overview of the early history and leaders of Atlanta and Georgia. After visiting the museum we will make our way to Ikea for some fun shopping and lunch at their cafeteria.
