    The Carlos Museum is an art museum in Atlanta, Georgia on the historic Emory University campus and houses the biggest ancient art collections in the southeast that includes relics from the Near East, Egypt, Rome, the Americas and Greece. It is kept in the Michael Graves designed structure that contains over 16,000 works and welcomes more than 120,000 visitors each year with its outstanding temporary and permanent exhibitions, as well as offering workshops, festivals, educational programming, symposia, lectures and performances. It also runs a conservation center, teaching lab and published quarterly catalogues. It assists classrooms of Georgia students with history, art and archaeology in its excellent outreach program, Art Odyssey. It is one of the oldest museums in the state, and date back to 1876, when a general museum opened and called the Emory College Museum in Oxford, Georgia. After it, the university, moved to Atlanta, a small group of professors would found the Emory University Museum in 1919. During the ensuing years, Michael C. Carlos would donate more than $20 million to create a permanent home of the collections and museum that opened in 1985. They enjoyed a massive expansion in 1993 that would transform the museum into one of the city's best arts institutions and once opened would be renamed to honor this great philanthropist. Its permanent Egyptian holdings would be greatly augmented in 1999 with the acquisition of 145 works from Canada's Niagara Falls Museum, with ornately decorated ancient coffins and mummies of both animals and people that form the nucleus of their permanent exhibition of ancient Egyptian art. That same year, Carlos would donate another $10 million to buy ancient Roman and Greek artifacts, so that it is now the owner of the finest existing portrait of the emperor Tiberius and one of the nation's best examples of Hellenistic sculpture. There are now a total of 450 works that are dedicated to the Roman and Greek artworks.
