Historical & Environmental Education Center

Explore, discover, and learn in over 5,400 square feet of interactive exhibit space, multiple state-of-the-art classrooms and a theater. 

The focus of the Historical & Environmental Education Center, located at the base of the walk-up trail, is to educate Park guests and local students about the fascinating geology and ecology of Stone Mountain. Visitors can explore the gallery, experiencing everything from interactive science exhibits to the life-size cave with a video about the origin of the mountain. Guests can also view the educational documentary “The Battle for Georgia – a History of the Civil War in Georgia,” which has been updated to a large screen video format. The 25 minute film is narrated by Hal Holbrook and features hundreds of archival photographic images and reenactment footage from the Civil War. In addition, guests can learn how the Confederate Memorial carving came to be by viewing the 11-minute feature film "The Men Who Carved the Mountain".
