Georgia Capitol Museum

The Capitol Museum is a hidden gem with a delightful consciousness of its own history. There are exhibit cases that detail the changing focus of the museum over time and the ways in which museum aesthetics have shifted. There are fantastic vintage dioramas on native flora and fauna and on key industries including peach packing and turpentine production.
Each museum case, especially in the large natural history section of the fourth floor, stands alone, inviting browsing and contemplation. I hope this museum is not as under-appreciated as it appeared on this quiet Wednesday afternoon.
