Atlanta History Center launches Swan House Capitol Tours for 'Hunger Games' fans

Earlier today, the official Facebook page of Atlanta History Center had updated their Cover Photo with an “important message”.

The Swan House at the Atlanta History Center was, of course, a major filming location for Catching Fire. It’s where President Snow’s party was filmed, glimpses of which we’ve seen in the trailer and stills.

The official website has now revealed that the Swan House will be having ‘Capitol Tours’ starting November 22, 2013 to January 6, 2014.

The Swan House at the Atlanta History Center was one of many Georgia set locations used during the filming of the movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. 

The Atlanta History Center’s Capitol Tour experience offers visitors an opportunity to pay tribute to Atlanta’s burgeoning film industry as well as Swan House’s new chapter in cinematic history. The Capitol Tour experience includes a guided tour through Swan House showcasing the rooms that were used during filming. Visitors will have exclusive admittance to a behind-the-scenes exhibit displaying photos from the production at Swan House and select props from the film. Snap a photo at two unique photo opportunities presenting recreations of portions of sets from scenes in the movie. Once the tour leaves the interior of Swan House, visitors may head outdoors to explore the gardens and lawn and capture more photo opportunities from the film.

After your tour, be sure to stop by the Museum Shop for official Hunger Games merchandise.

The Capitol Tour ticket is $10 + the price of general Atlanta History Center admission. Parking is free. Capitol Tours are reserved onsite at the time of your arrival. Capitol Tours are available from 1:00 to 5:00 pm, with the last tour scheduled at 4:30 pm. Due to limited availability; we recommend you arrive early to ensure a space on the tour. If you have a group of 10 or more, please call 404.814.4031 for reservations. Capitol Tours are not available on November 28, 29, and December 6, 24, 25, 2013; or January 1, 2014.
