The Gate is a classically styled monumental arch located in Atlanta, historically called “The Gate City.” It is designed in the tradition of classical Roman triumphal arches that have been built around the world over the past 2,500 years, and houses a 12,000 square foot museum that narrates Georgia’s history through sophisticated interactive technology, film, period rooms, and exhibitions. The museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity and a winner of the Palladio Award for design of a public space. The original concept was planned for Washington D.C. by the American Urban Design Foundation, now the National Monuments Foundation.

THE STATUE OF ZEUS AT OLYMPIA

Seventh Wonder of the Ancient World

One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World — the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, designed by Phidias will be recreated for the exhibition. The statue endured almost 800 years before being moved or destroyed under unknown circumstances. Our model is based on the most accurate information available. Visitors to the Gate Museum will experience the majesty of one of the Seven Wonders as well as iconic classical sculptures of Olympic athletes.

Facilitator for world-class art and history exhibitions

The Gate is also a facilitator for world-class art and history exhibitions which tour venues exclusively across Georgia. To great national and British acclaim, the museum recently organized an eight city tour of The Art of Diplomacy: Winston Churchill and the Pursuit of Painting to LaGrange, Sea Island, Columbus, Macon, Atlanta, Rome, Athens, and Savannah.
