June of 2021 I visited The Culture Experience in Atlanta, GA, which is a nostalgic photo exhibit taking you back to the late 90’s and early 2000’s! I found out about the exhibit via social media. If you’re in your late 20’s and older you’ll really appreciate the exhibit that takes you back to your younger years of VHS tapes, dial up Internet, landline telephones, and CD players!
According to the website http://www.cultureexperienceatl.com, “Culture Experience is an interactive photo exhibit that highlights moments in history, community, nostalgia, and pop culture in ATLANTA! From the late-’90s iconic SO SO DEF Billboard to the historic celebration of HBCU Homecoming, this interactive photo exhibit takes you on an expansive journey through more than 20 milestone moments. Unlike other photo popups, we customize each exhibit for each city. This means that we are always new, always fresh, and always tailored “For The Culture.” Atlanta, GA has the perfect mix of pop-culture and heritage.”
I really enjoyed myself and am happy I went on a Sunday afternoon when it was not crowded. Less people and fewer germs= a great time!
My best friend since college and I and a total of three other people were at the exhibit and we felt like we had the place to ourselves and weren’t rushed because it was hardly anyone else there at the time of day we selected. Tickets have to be pre-purchased online and are around $29 per adult. For more information please check out their website or Instagram page @cultureexperience_atl.
Also, the people that work there are friendly and even if you go alone they can help take pictures. We were there for about an hour visiting the exhibit which is located near the West End near two historically black schools, Spelman College and Morehouse College. Check the exhibit out while it’s still in the city.
