Where are we going today?
Kids LOVE to play, and parents LOVE to see their kids learning, so why not take them to the Children's Museum of Atlanta for your next family day out, because there they are ALL about sparking that imagination, inspiring discovery, and allowing kids invaluable learning experiences through play!
The Children's Museum of Atlanta is no ordinary museum! Here, kids won't find any "do not touch" signs. Nope! Instead, it's all about touching, playing, getting creative, experimenting, and using those imaginations!
Each of the exhibits within the Children's Museum of Atlanta are geared towards those under 8 years, and encourage kids to develop specific areas of learning and growth, and each one offers a different type of fun! So let's explore!
Kids can learn all about the magic of food as they learn where fruit and vegetables come from on the farms. They can ride a tractor, and even milk "Buttercup" the cow! Have you ever wanted to operate a fork lift, kids? Now is your chance!
The wonders of the world are ready to be explored at the museum too, where kids can crawl through all the layers of the earth, launch a rocket, and even explore all of the continents! Who knew you could have the world right at your fingertips!
Those little ones can leap into learning with this babies and toddlers exhibition, where they can catch colorful fish, explore the magical forest, and meet lots of fun animals!
Those creative minds can experiment over sounds and colors, and release that inner Picasso as they build giant sand castles, or channel their inner thespian as they dress up and shine on stage. Let's not forget those curious minds too in the science laboratory!
Learning has never been so fun, so let's all get learning!

It doesn't even deserve one star. don't waste your money, your kids will enjoy the coke museum better or the aquarium or even the free park opposite world of coke.
The front office manager is rude and unreasonable. facilities are poor and not sanitized in some places.
No value for money. The staff have no clue about the exhibits and not child friendly. There is no interaction. Poor parking facilities. Tellus Museum is a better option and is more worth your dime.
Alot these people are right about the outdated exhibits. For a first-timer, it may seem great, but after about two trips, I was bored. It is much like are large playroom, with outdated gadgets. I got a membership this year so my 4yr old would have something to do during the winter. We had already Zoo Atlanta and Ga Aquarium memberships, and were regulars at Stone Mtn, so decided to try out the Museum. I don't appreciate having to pay for parking, and my child walks in, and heads straight for the choochoo train play area which is usually the last...Read More

I'm only able to give Imagine It! 3 stars because I've been taking my daughter there for many years and haven't been able to keep her engaged as she gets older. The Museum, to my knowledge, hasn't changed the design very much at all in many years. I could understand if this was a place that people only visited once a year or less, but for those of us with young children (and memberships) we would enjoy some variety and development in the offerings.

My 2 year old boy went for the first time with his 5 year old boy cousin. They both had a great time! They have many fun and stimulating things to do for that age group. The only thing parents may need to know is to bring your own food/snacks and parking in the area is about $10. The place gets pretty crowded but we got there about 9 30 and left around 12 00. It was starting to get a lot busier when we were about to leave. We will definitely go back.

parents should not have to pay, atleast not full price anyway. The children have to get to the children museum some how?
