Children’s Museum of Atlanta: Bringing Learning to Life
The Children’s Museum of Atlanta is a children’s museum located in Atlanta, Georgia, founded in 1988 as a “Museum Without Walls” and opened to the public in 2003. This hands-on museum is sure to inspire imagination and discovery.
The museum is comprised of seven permanent exhibits:
- Fundamentally Food – A fun exhibit where kids can interact and learn where their food comes from. From milking a cow to climbing up on the John Deere tractor, spending the day on the museum farm is a lot less messy than the real thing.
- Gateway to the World – The museum’s largest exhibit, Gateway to the World allows children to use their imaginations to visit six continents, launch a rocket and climb through the layers of the Earth.
- Leaping into Learning – This outdoor-inspired exhibit features a magical forest, fishing pond, waterfall and more.
- Let Your Creativity Flow – At this exciting exhibit, not only are kids allowed to paint on the walls, but they are encouraged! This display also features sand tables, costumes and more.
- Step Up to Science – Kids love learning about the human body, the miracle of light and the technology of robots in this hands-on exhibit.
- Tools for Solutions – Use real tools and materials in the Build-It Lab, learn how to attach make-believe wires, connect pipes and insulate walls in the Construction House.
- From Here to There – The newest exhibit focusing on the history of travel with cars, planes, trains, hoverboarding and more.
