Children's Museum of Atlanta

275 Centennial Olympic Park Dr NW, Atlanta, GA 30313 View Map

Children’s Museum of Atlanta has a rich history, beginning in 1988 as a virtual “Museum Without Walls”, providing innovative programming to schools and non-profits. In 2003, a permanent facility opened in thriving downtown Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park. Since opening, Children’s Museum of Atlanta has become Atlanta’s premier source of fun-filled learning for young children, a recognized authority on children’s informal learning, a committed advocate on behalf of children, and a signature element in Atlanta’s cultural landscape. CMA receives 200,000 guests annually and has welcomed over 2 million visitors to date.

Children’s Museum of Atlanta is the only educational venue of its kind in Atlanta, presenting educational programs and exhibits designed for young children ages 0-8. The Museum features bright, creative, hands-on exhibits designed to promote inventive problem solving, creative thinking and artistic expression. Core competencies for literacy, math and science are promoted throughout all exhibits and programming in alignment with the state and national Core Performance Standards. Children’s Museum of Atlanta presents temporary feature exhibits in addition to four permanent learning zones. Feature exhibits are chosen for their educational content and are uniquely presented with guidance from an Advisory Committee of community experts. Each exhibit offers an opportunity to focus programming on a different educational concept. Innovative programming allows us to further incorporate financial literacy, nutrition and fitness, world history, social science, environmental science, multicultural events, art and live theater.
