We recently visited and my daughter and nephew both had a blast. We opted to leave our 2 older ones at home because we figured it was more for elementary kids and we were right. From the crane and balls to the tree house and pond, the toddlers really enjoyed it. Definitely bring lots of hand sanitizer because their stations... More

We held my daughter's 3rd birthday here. We didn't do a formal bday party because it was such a small group with very short attention spans, but it was still perfect. There was something for everyone here. Our only mistake was scheduling lunch too early, the kids could have played for another couple given the chance.

This place is amazing for the little people in our lives! My son had a GREAT time! So many educational things for the kids as well as some programs geared towards kids with autism. Amazing place!

We took our 2.5 yr old granddaughter. She loved it so that is why I gave it a 4. My husband and I expected more from a city the size of Atlanta and for the price. 14.95 for a 2.5 yr old? They should get in free or for a nominal amount. Then we got hit with a $30 parking... More

The Children's Museum is far better-titled "educational play place" as the term museum makes one think about walking around and looking at historic or scientific things. Kids explore and completely involve themselves in historic and scientific things here. Plan to come early (by noon) and spend a few hours. They offer different programs and classes during different seasons so check... More

We have visited this museum several times with our grandchildren and I guess I expect more being Atlanta metro area has about 2.5 times the population of our area. I'd say the museum is a good place to take kids under the age of 8 to on a rainy day so they can run around, but I didn't see anything... More

We took my 2 year old son here this past weekend. He had a blast! Some of the things he was to young to understand but that didn't stop him. Shoot I had fun too! The kid kitchen was a miniature chefs kitchen. There was a grocery store. A cow to milk. Train tracks that were laid out to look... More

I took my 7 year old grandson there yesterday. I had not been to the museum since it was redone. It was crowded given that it was Thanksgiving Week but that did not interfere with the fun that the children were having. This is a great place for kids with many different things for children to do and explore. They... More

Our family visited the Children's Museum of Atlanta on a recent Saturday morning. We parked across the street in the American Cancer Society garage for $10 which covered the whole day. We are members of our local children's museum and we were able to get half price admission as part of a reciprocal program. One of the main reasons we... More
