Children’s Museum of Atlanta highlights

One of the most iconic aspects of the Children’s Museum of Atlanta is the troupe of professional actors here known as the Imaginators. They will work to guide groups through the museum while offering entertainment and hands-on activities.

The exhibits here are state of the art with quite a few that your little ones will enjoy. You'll find one exhibit that's focused on showcasing how a farm works alongside another that gives kids the basics about tools like cranes and corkscrews. If your kids are more artistic, there's an entire art area with a paint wall, stage, and studio space.
